Social Security Number Question

Posted by   + Show Post

Unfortunately I have misplaced both of my daughter's SS cards (seperate times). I am in the process of ordering them new cards but I am wondering if the SS office will release their SSN's to me over the phone after proper verification?


Thank you for your help!

For the kids all I needed was birth certificate and immunizations. But for me to change them they had a form to fill out there and I needed my ID. My ID had my right address on it so that's what I used as a proof of address. So, not really a lot of things. But they definitely won't give it over the phone lol.

ETA~ I think the birth certificate was optional if you brought the immunizations :)

Quoting needadvice1983:

Depends on the state. I had to get my DS's replaced and all I had to bring in was a copy of his birth certificate and my marriage license (to show my maiden name changed to my married name since the mothers maiden name is on the childs birth cert). Your state is crazy to want all of that! But I doubt, OP, that they will give it to you over the phone. 


Quoting fstysxofthebtt:

No they won't. They will require a signed and stamped copy of vaccinations from the doctors office. You will have to go in and provide them with your id, proof of address, birth certificates, forms filled out from their office, and the copy of vaccinations.

This is a FOR SURE, 100% positive answer. I just had to do it with my DS and DD.

From a social security technical benefits expert, my SO, the answer to your question is NO. 

Go in person but you will need documents to verify who you are, and documents for the children before they release that information. 

Did you claim them on your taxes last year? If so do you have a copy of your returns? Their numbers will be on the returns.

No you will have to go to the ss office and they will give you a print out if you have a copy of last years taxes you can get it.
