Important Information from the Social Security Administration

Posted: June 6, 2013

The Social Security Administration's requirements for issuing Social Security Number (SSN) printouts are less stringent than the requirements for issuing replacement SSN cards. SSN printouts have no physical security features; therefore, it is easier to counterfeit them, perpetrate SSN misuse, and commit identity theft. To resolve this problem, beginning June 24, 2013, if an individual is applying for a replacement Social Security card or wants a printout of their Social Security number, they will need to provide proof of identity. More information can be found in in this flyer developed by the Social Security Administration.
