Why the Social Security Card Application is so Difficult
Your Social Security card is one of the most important documents you own. So why is trying to get a new one so difficult?
Obviously, the SSA must make sure new applicants are who they say they are, but there are a few things about the application that make it unnecessarily difficult. Each year, countless applicants are denied a new card only to have to complete the process ALL OVER AGAIN.
- 1. Multiple different documents are required along with your application:
The documents required may just be your passport and driver’s license. However, there are times when a birth certificate or even hospital records may be required. It all depends.
- 2. You have to wait in line at the office:
You may have to find the local Social Security Administration office and wait in line to receive your forms. This alone could waste hours of your day.
- 3. Not all states can file online:
Certain states allow residents to submit the application online. But even if you are a resident of one of these states, the SSA does not offer any support in filling out the form.
- 4. Government information is confusing:
All of the information might be out there, but it’s confusing and borderline daunting, especially if this is your first time filling in the application. Trying to figure out what you need to write, where to put it, and what to send along with your application can be extremely stressful.
- 5. Any mistake means INSTANT denial:
The Social Security Administration warns all applicants that any errors on the application or the wrong documentation will result in INSTANT denial. To make things worse, you won’t find out about it until 3 weeks after you’re denied. Then you’ll have to start the process all over again.

Why You Need a New or Replacement Social Security Card
Your Social Security card is one of those things you don’t pay much attention to…until you lose it.
It’s actually one of the most vital documents in your possession and should be safeguarded at all times. If you lose yours or if it is stolen,
you absolutely have to complete a Social Security card application to replace it. Even if you know the number by heart, the card is indispensable.
How to Change a Name on a Social Security Card
If are changing your name for marriage, divorce, court order, or any other reason, you must inform the Social Security Administration. It is possible to file a
Social Security card application by yourself or through this service for name change purposes. If you don’t, it could cause delays in filing your taxes or errors in
regards to Social Security benefits. If you wish to change your name, you must:
Provide supporting documentation
Like all other applications, you must provide proof of citizenship and identity.
Depending on your reason for changing your name, you must provide supporting evidence to the Social Security Administration. This could be a marriage certificate, divorce papers, Certificate of Naturalization showing your new name, or a court order approving your name change. The regulations regarding this can be a bit confusing if you have changed your name multiple times. Please contact our support professionals if you have any questions.
Provide Your SS-5 Form
You must select the proper boxes on the SS-5 for a name change and fill in the application correctly. You cannot perform this function online. You must submit your application by mail or in person.
