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
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.
