Technology helps us every single day in so many ways and when we actually think of how hard it was in the past to get in touch with someone, we should be really thankful for what modern society has achieved in order to simplify our lives.
Take Internet for example: it’s easier now to purchase something, to talk to your relatives and friends, and, of course, to be informed. Basically… everything you need and wish for with a click of a button and this doesn’t exclude your Social Security issues.
Some problems that are related to Social Security can be resolved online. There’s no need to go to a Social Security office to wait for hours just to request a replacement for your Social Security card. Instead, you should set up a free MySocialSecurity account in order to protect yourself against fraud and then attend to the issues you have.
Don’t worry, you don’t have to be a tech savvy to get your Social Security things done.
1. Request a Replacement Social Security Card
Now it is simpler to replace your Social Security card… Say bye-bye to long hours of waiting at Social Security office and hello to your computer! You can request a replacement Social Security online by clicking here in mere seconds.
However, the Social Security Administration is still trying to figure out this online service and you should know that Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, and West Virginia aren’t eligible (yet). Therefore, those who live there must search for the nearest Social Security office for a replacement card.
So, if you’re not from the states that we mentioned earlier and if you only need a replacement, you should create an account, sign up and voilà—the replacement Social Security card should arrive within two weeks.
