You do not need your actual Social Security card in order to collect Social Security benefits.

You just need to know your Social Security number.

However, if you've lost or misplaced your card, it would be prudent to request a duplicate card.

Here's a link to the Social Security Web Page with the instructions as to how to obtain a duplicate Social Security card.

Let me know if you have any follow-up questions.

Please remember to rate my response.

Thanks very much,

Steve G.
