RM 10205.425 Exception to SSN Card Limits Due to Hardship

When a number holder (NH) reaches his or her yearly or lifetime SSN card limits, an SSN replacement card may still be issued if failure to receive an SSN card will cause a hardship.

To receive an exception due to hardship, the NH must present a letter from a third-party provider, such as a State public assistance agency or an employer, indicating that the NH must present his or her SSN card to receive employment or a benefit.

NOTE: If the individual needs verification of his or her SSN, but cannot present a letter from a third party, an acceptable exception is not met. SSNAP denies the replacement SSN card application and prints the appropriate notice. For instructions, see the SSNAP User Guide.
