To help combat fraud and identity theft, Social Security will no longer issue Social Security number printouts beginning in August. If you need written confirmation of your Social Security number and you can’t find your Social Security card, you can apply for a replacement.

In most cases, you don’t need your card as long as you know your number. Usually providing your number and identifying information is enough.

In the event you want or need a replacement card, you can find the details you need at The “Social Security Number and Card” page provides information on how to obtain a replacement card and what specific documents you need to provide.
