Each member is mandated by Social Security to get a Social Security Number. However, for those members who lost their social security card and may want to apply for another card they can call Social Security hotline in their area or they may visit Social Security Office for instructions. The usual requirement for lost Social Security card is an affidavit of loss duly notarized by an attorney. Also satisfactory proof of identification is required. For members who may want to have their name changed or their status changed, they may bring their birth certificate while a marriage contract or annulment or divorce court ruling is required for those who want to have their status changed. Likewise, for members who may want to add beneficiaries, they can call Social Security Office for documents that are required for them to submit. And please be reminded that only certified copies of pertinent documents are required.
