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.
