Asked by an anonymous Tumblr user.
There are three steps to replacing a Social Security card:
- Gather documents to prove you identity and U.S. citizenship or current work-authorized immigration status.
- Complete an Application for a Social Security Card (PDF).
- Take or mail your completed application and documents to your local Social Security office.
After the Social Security Administration receives your application and verifies your documents, you should receive your replacement Social Security card by mail within 10 business days.
