Will they give me a chance to request a new Social secruity card?

I just started a job a few days ago. I gave them all my information including my social security number. Now they are asking for the card and I don't have it. I just recently had my purse stolen and haven't had a chance to go request a new card yet. I had to start my new job the next day and after work the social office is closed. Do you think they will fire me for not having it or will they give me a chance to request one and I can bring them a receipt?  Thanks

  • Of course they will give you time to get one. I lost mine too.

  • I would think if you explain that your purse was stolen and you are going to go request a new one, they should be fine with it.

  • Just tell them what happened, you can order a new one on line, and that should be good enough, you can take your tax return in in the meantime to offer up proof.

  • Do you have a passport? That would probably work. They have to have a copy of your legal status to work on file, and for taxes, but a passport would work.

    But they should definitely give you time to get a new card (unless they are really, really, really, really, really concerned that you are not working legally)

  • I don't have a passport. Never left the country before. I was born here so I don't think they would assume I am an illegal.
