In case you lose your Social Security Card(SSC), or in an event where it is stolen, you can get new card by applying for an original Social Security card, for which there is no charge. All you need to do is use your Social Security account to ask for a replacement of your card. However there are some laws that must be honored – you should be a U.S. citizen, you should be 18 years or older with a U.S. mailing address, you cannot request for any additional changes in the new card, and you must also have a driver's license or a state-issued identity proof from the participating states.
