Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

Your wife needs to report the lost/stolen card to Social Security as soon as possible. The number is ***** She can call between the hours of 7:00 am and 7:00 pm, Monday through Friday. She will have to request a replacement card. Social Security does not issue new numbers except in rare circumstances.

Because she does not know if someone picked up her card and will use it for fraudulent purposes, the following link contains all of the steps she should take:

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
