Social Security announces online service for replacement Social Security cards

The Social Security Administration announced the expansion of online services Monday for residents of Texas available through its “my Social Security portal” at www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount.

According to a press release, Acting Commissioner of Social Security Nancy A. Berryhill said Texas residents can use the portal for replacement Social Security number card requests, which will allow people to replace their SSN card from their home or office.

“I’m pleased to offer the residents of Texas the added convenience of replacing a Social Security card through the my Social Security portal,”  Berryhill said. “We will continue to work on innovative initiatives to provide people with safe, secure and convenient options for doing business with us online or in person.”

U.S. citizens age 18 or older who are residents of Texas can request a replacement SSN card online by creating an online account. They also must have a U.S. domestic mailing address, not require a change to their record and have a valid driver’s license.
