I realize you have a question about social security. My goal is to provide you with excellent service, and help you better understand your options.
How are you doing today?
I'm sorry to hear about your issue. However, it's one that you can clear up. I'm sure it was an honest mistake, and it did happen many, many years ago.
What you can do is fill out form SS-5, which is an application for a social security card. You use the same form whether it's the first time you are applying or if you need a replacement card.
Take that form to your local office, and bring your birth certificate along with you. Use the correct parents name on this form.
This should update social security's records for you. Plus, the agent will be there to verify with you.
The form is available, HERE.
All you need is the form filled out, a copy of your birth certificate showing your parents correct names, and then a photo ID to prove your identity.
will i be able to keep my same card i received 35 years ago?
Yes, you can still keep the same card you used. You will have the same social security number and everything.
Again , I can get the form at the ss office and process immediately as long as i have necessary documentation?
Yes, you can - or you can print the form out as I provided a link, fill it out, and take it to social security. They will update your record while you sit there.
Thanks so much
