New Citizens Can Now Get Social Security Updates More Easily

Great news for those who recently became U.S. citizens. Now they can easily get information about Social Security.

Per recent updates, new citizens can now request a new or replacement Social Security card. They can submit this request along with their Application for Naturalization. They can also get a new number, all without having to visit a Social Security Administration (SSA) office.

These changes could be very helpful for those who need this information to progress their citizenship. After all, Social Security numbers and cards represent critical data points that help people get employment, verify their identity, and much more.

Will these changes help new citizens? How will they impact SSA operations overall?
