A. Introduction

Requests for a duplicate or original SSN card sometimes accompany requests for earnings statements.

B. Procedure - General

Although the responsibility for furnishing an SSN card is not under the jurisdiction of this procedure, as a courtesy to the requester, forward Form SS-5 to the requester to enable them to receive the requested information.

C. Procedure - Earnings Request Received

If an earnings request is received with a request for a duplicate or original SSN card:

  • Annotate “SS-5” on top of the original Form SSA-7004-SM-OP1 and sort for data entry.

  • Highlight the necessary information on Form SS-5 to alert the number holder what information is needed to request an SSN card.

  • Include the Correspondence Transmittal, with the SS-5. Check box 4 “Other”, on the in-house form and annotate “We have processed your earnings request and should receive the information in approximately four to six weeks.”

D. Procedure - Earnings Request is not Received

If an earnings request is not received with a request to change or correct name information, mail Form SS-5 to the requester. Highlight the necessary instructions on Form SS-5 to request an SSN card. Forward the original correspondence received requesting an SSN card back to the number holder with the SS-5.
