In December 2015, the Social Security Administration (SSA) launched an online service that allows residents of participating U.S. states the ability to request replacement social security cards from the comfort of their home or office, without having to visit an SSA office. Louisiana is now participating in this program along with AR, AZ, CA, DC, DE, FL, IA, ID, IL, IN, KY, MA, ME, MD, MI, MS, ND, NE, NM, PA, SD, TX, VA, WA and WI.
To apply for a replacement SSN you will need to:
- log on to http://www.ssa.gov/myaccount/
- create an account if you haven’t already
- once created, click menu then click online services
- click "Request a replacement Social Security card"
