Lost your Social Security card? Here’s what to do
If you have somehow lost your Social Security card, there are some things to do to not only get a replacement, but also ensuring that the lost card isn’t used for any nefarious purpose.

But if you don’t have an online account and can’t set one up, you can request a replacement by mail or in person at your local Social Security office.
