Social Security Card
You need a Social Security number to get a job, collect Social Security benefits and receive some other government services. But you don’t often need to show your Social Security card. Do not carry your card with you. Keep it in a safe place with your other important papers.
The U.S. Social Security Administration can help you get a new or replacement social security card.
Marriage, Divorce, Birth & Death Certificates
Many Missouri residents can quickly obtain their birth, death, marriage, and divorce records at the local level. However, while there are some types of vital records available at the county level, there are other types of records that are only available from the Bureau of Vital Records in Jefferson City. For a listing of all available vital records and their availability, contact the Bureau of Vital Records.
Locally, marriage licenses can be obtained from the Recorder of Deeds Office in the county where the license was obtained. Divorce decrees can be obtained from the Circuit Clerk in the county where the divorce was granted.
