Mr. Boxy
You will need to fill out form SS-5 and submit a form of I.D. and a document proving your citizenship. These documents need to be originals, or copies certified by the issuing agency: photocopies aren't acceptable.

The form can be downloaded here:

Your local office can be located here:

Even if you're in a foreign country, there may be a local office you can use to get a replacement. A few large metropolitan areas also have social security card centers which do nothing but issue cards.


As an adult, you can submit a current driver's license, non-driver's identification card, or passport. If for some reason you don't have any of those documents, two photo IDs from other sources, like a college or workplace.

If you need to get a replacement card for your child, you will need to show one of the forms of ID above to prove you are the child's legal guardian. You will also need documents for your son or daughter that includes as much information as possible, preferably including his or her name, age, date of birth, parents' names, and a recent photo. Birth certificates, passports, hospital records, school records, adoption decrees, or school IDs can be used.


As an adult, you can send in a passport, birth certificate, consular report of birth (birth documentation for citizens born outside the U.S,) certificate of naturalization, or certificate of citizenship.

Note that a passport can be used for both proof of identity and citizenship.
