    • Shaynequia, thank you for using our blog to ask your question. It’s free to get a replacement Social Security card. Some private companies not affiliated with Social Security or any other government agency charge fees for this service. However, these companies offer no advantage and you still must provide documents directly to Social Security.

      Be cautious about giving your private information, especially your Social Security number, to anyone.

      Visit our Social Security Number and Card web page for details on how to obtain a replacement Social Security card.
