If you have original medicare (you use the red, white, and blue card), call(###) ###-####(7am to 7pm local time Monday through Friday), apply online, or go to a Social Security office. You will need to provide your name, Social Security number, and date of birth. You should receive a new card within 30 days.

If you have a Medicare Advantage plan, you need to contact your provider. If you have Social Security benefits through the Railroad Retirement Board, call(###) ###-####instead.
