    Hi,
    I got my citizenship in 2011. My social security account does not show my US citizenship. I called the Social Security office and they told me to fill the replacement card. I was wondering why do I need to fill the replacement card when I have the same name on my naturalization certificate and Social Security.

      Thank you for your question, Sneh, and for reading our blog. Congratulations on becoming a U.S. citizen. You cannot update citizenship status with Social Security online. You will need to update your Social Security record by showing us your Certificate of Naturalization and completing an application for a corrected Social Security card. All submitted documents must be either originals or certified copies by the issuing agency. We cannot accept photocopies or notarized copies of documents. Please visit our Social Security and Coronavirus web page. If you believe you qualify for an in-office appointment, call your local office. You’ll find the contact information using our online Social Security Office Locator.

    I was awarded custody of my 14 year old daughter however she didn’t have her social security card. She has had one, I believe I’m needing a replacement. What do I do?

    I requested a social security card replacement via mail back in November and submitted the application form, and the required documents. I received the original documents back (passport and birth certificate) but never received the replacement card nor any letter from the SSA office. How can I follow up on this?

      Hi MJ, thanks for using our blog. Please call your local Social Security office. Look for the general inquiry telephone number at the Social Security Office Locator. The number may appear under Show Additional Office Information. Please be aware that our call wait times are longer than normal. We hope this information helps.
