Medicare beneficiaries can now obtain a replacement card if they have lost, damaged, or otherwise need to replace it, using the My Social Security portal available at www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount.
Requesting a replacement card through a My Social Security account is a convenient, cost-effective and secure way to ensure Medicare beneficiaries have a critical piece of identification available when required by medical providers as proof of Medicare coverage. Simply create, or access your online My Social Security account at www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount and select the “Replacement Documents” tab. Then select “Mail my replacement Medicare card.” After you request a card, it will arrive in the mail in approximately 30 days.
Current Social Security beneficiaries also can manage their account—change an address, adjust direct deposit, obtain a benefit verification letter, or request a replacement SSA-1099—through this portal.
