Hi, my name is ***** ***** I can help. For instructions on how to get a new SS card, visit You generally have to visit a Social Security office with original documents proving your citizenship and identity. If you cannot make it to a Social Security office, you can mail copies of the originals as long as the copies have been certified by the issuing agency, which might very well be much more difficult than making it a Social Security office. However, if you have a driver's license from District of Columbia, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Nebraska, New Mexico, Washington, or Wisconsin you can apply for a new card online by creating an online Social Security account by visiting I hope this answers your question. Please let me know if I can clarify anything or answer any additional questions.Thanks, Jonathan
