REPLACING SOCIAL SECURITY CARDS
The Social Security Administration introduced the expansion of online services for residents of Michigan
available through its my
Social Security portal at
www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount. Carolyn W. Colvin, Acting
Commissioner of Social Security, announced that residents of Michigan
can use the portal for many replacement Social Security number (SSN)
card requests. This will allow people to replace their
SSN card from the comfort of their home or office, without the need to
travel to a Social Security office.
“I’m thrilled about this newest online feature to the agency’s my
Social Security portal and the added
convenience we are providing residents of Michigan,” Acting Commissioner
Colvin said. “We continue to provide world-class customer service to
the public by making it safe, fast and easy
for people to do business with us online and have a positive government
experience. I look forward to expanding this service option across the
The agency plans to conduct a gradual roll out of this service;
Michigan is one of four states, plus the District of Columbia, where
this option is initially available. Throughout 2016, the agency will
continue to expand the service option to other states
and plans to offer this to half of the nation’s population by the end
of the year. This service will mean shorter wait times for the public in
the more than 1,200 Social Security offices across the country and
allows staff more time to work with customers
who have extensive service needs.
U.S. citizens age 18 or older and who are residents of Michigan can obtain a replacement SSN card online by creating a
my Social Security
account. In addition, they must have a U.S. domestic mailing address,
not require a change to their record (such as a name change), and have a
valid driver’s license,
or state identification card in some participating states.
is a secure online hub for doing business with
Social Security, and more than 22 million people have created an
account. In addition to Michigan residents replacing their SSN card
through the portal, current Social Security beneficiaries
can manage their account—change an address, adjust direct deposit,
obtain a benefit verification letter, or request a replacement SSA-1099.
Medicare beneficiaries can request a replacement Medicare card without
waiting for a replacement form in the mail. Account
holders still in the workforce can verify their earnings and obtain
estimates of future benefits.
