Let’s learn how do i get my social security card. The most accurate or helpful solution is served by Yahoo! Answers.
There are ten answers to this question.
My husband is currently at army basic training. When he went he brought all of our documents (my birth certificate, social security card, our marriage license, etc) so that he could enroll me in DEERS. Well, I have now received a packet with the paperwork instructing me how to get my ID card. It states that I will need to bring my social security card with me to get it. The only problem I'm encountering with that is that my husband still has ALL of my paperwork, and because he's still in the red.
Go to the social security office and get another.

I'm having a hard time. I am 18 years old with a lost social security card, a lost birth certificate, and without a state Id. I do have a social security number and a print out of the social security number. I also have two pieces of mail with my address.
You can go to the city/town hall where you were born and get your birth certificate. if not local, call.

I signed up for the SATs the other day and it said that official ID would be needed. With some research, I realized that I needed my birth certificate and social security card to get photo ID. My SATs are on June 4th. I asked my mom for those things.
The county in which you were born will have the birth certificate . Call the county office and they.

It says you need a non-expired state id or license to get your social security card replaced, yet you need a social security card to get your state id or license renewed. What do you do now?
When you get a S.S. Card, it comes on a card with a second card. You are suppose to keep that in a safe.

My friend's i.d. was stolen, but she doesn't have a social security card so she can't get a new one. But since she has no i.d., she can't get a social security card, either. How do you get these documents if you don't have either?? She has a birth certificate.
You MUST have your birth certificate AND ID in order to get a new social security card. Google ".

What Should I Do If My Wallet Is Lost or Stolen?
You reach into your purse or pocket and it's gone. You've lost your wallet – or worse, it's been stolen.
After you determine that the wallet is definitely gone and not just hiding in a couch cushion, there are some steps you must take quickly:
First, file a police report to establish a record of your loss. They'll need to know when it was lost or stolen, what you think happened and what was in the wallet.
Call your bank. You may need to close and reopen your accounts, and you'll definitely need to cancel your ATM card and get a new one. If you report the loss before someone uses your ATM/debit card, you have zero liability – but your liability increases in other instances: if you report it within two days, your liability is $50; between two and 60 days, your liability is $500, and after 60 days your liability is unlimited.
If your checkbook disappears, you'll need to close that account and reconfigure any direct deposits and auto-payments you've arranged. Make sure your bank alerts the check verification companies to prevent someone using your checks.
Start a call log and list the date, time and people you talk to.
Call your credit card issuers. They will cancel your cards and issue new ones. They'll also ask you about recent transactions. Under federal credit rules, if you report the loss before your card is used fraudulently, you are not liable; if not, your liability is limited to $50.
Call the three major credit reporting bureaus and ask to put a fraud alert on your file, to prevent identity theft in the future. The initial fraud alert stays on for 90 days. You also can request an extended fraud alert, which stays in effect for seven years.
Equifax: (800) 525-6285 or www.equifax.com Experian: (888) 397-3742 or www.experian.com TransUnion: (800) 680-7289 or www.transunion.com
If your Social Security card was in your wallet – and now you know why it NEVER should be – you'll have to call your local Social Security Administration office and explain what happened. They will replace the card for free but you'll have to fill out Form SS-5 and present documentation. Your replacement card will have the same number as the original.
Order your credit report from each of the three credit reporting bureaus to make sure there's nothing fishy on there. You are entitled to one free report from each of the three bureaus every 12 months through www.annualcreditreport.com – the official site created under the auspices of the Federal Trade Commission. And be sure to regularly review your bank and credit card statements.
Make your life easier next time: Only carry the cards that you need, and never keep your Social Security card or your PIN numbers in your wallet. Keep your other cards in a safe place. Also, write down your credit card numbers and customer service telephone numbers on a piece of paper you'll keep in a safe place. That way, if this happens again, you can quickly and easily report the missing cards to the card issuers.

Your Facebook Identity Was Stolen. Now What?
A couple of weeks ago, I was at dinner with Mr. D and our friend Matt Cermak. We talked about whether or not we thought Manti Te’o made up a fake girlfriend for publicity.
Typically the cynical one of the group, I took Te’o’s side stating I can understand how something like this happens.
I spend a lot of time online. I’ve made friends with people online and then met them in person and have been disappointed to learn their personas don’t match. And that’s minor. Making up an entirely fake profile? It can happen. I get it.
To have someone go to those lengths, though? To create a persona, “find” a Heisman finalist and potential first round NFL draft pick, and romance him into a long-distance relationship? That’s quite the elaborate prank. Imagine having to keep that one a secret.
Whether or not he was complicit in the hoax remains to be seen, but for now, I’m giving him the benefit of the doubt.
It turns out you don’t have to be a famous college football player be pranked online.
You may remember a few weeks ago, Amy Vernon was featured here on #FollowFriday.
Take a look at the photo and introduction I used in that blog post:
Now take a look at a Facebook profile Amy found of one Melissa Dugan:
Look eerily familiar? It’s because it’s the same person. But Melissa doesn’t exist. Or perhaps she does and she doesn’t want to use her own photos so she stole those of Amy.
It doesn’t stop there. Melissa’s likes include guns, racist groups (even going as far as using really awful racial slurs), and Subway. Amy is the polar opposite (even claiming to like Blimpie’s instead of Subway).
Not only did she steal Amy’s photos, she said she was “with Gerald E. Tanner Sr” in her photo and he commented on it. Twice!
Who are these people?!
You can see this particular photo was posted in July, but all of this person’s photos from July on were of Amy:
It took months for Amy to discover this had happened. In her own words, it’s not the end of the world. It’s just her face. They didn’t steal her name. But it’s shocking none-the-less.
She is lucky they didn’t steal her name or her credit cards or her social security number or her passwords. She immediately contacted Facebook and, while it took them several days to respond, they did remove Melissa Dugan’s profile.
But what if this person (or people) had done more than steal her photos?
It’s turning into a big business: Thieves stealing your online identity. Amy is extremely sophisticated and technologically savvy. If you want to get to her profile, you truly have to be her friend.
But many, many people use Facebook thinking only their friends can see their profiles so they post their birthday, names of family members, their home address, pet’s names, cars they’ve owned…in other words answers to the most common security questions a credit card company or bank will ask you before giving you online access to your accounts.
Armed with this kind of information, they then go to LinkedIn to learn more about your professional history. Then they go to Ancestry.com, create a fake account, and begin to pilfer through to see if they can find the Holy Grail of information about you: Your mother’s maiden name.
If you’re like Amy and someone only steals your photos, you can appeal directly to Facebook (or the social network where the offense happened). They aren’t exactly fast, but if you can prove you are who you say you are, they’ll remove the offender’s account…and not let them back on.
Also, please, please, please review your settings to make sure they’re as secure as you think they are.
Do this by going into Facebook and clicking on the wheel-looking icon in the far right corner. Click that and scroll down to “privacy settings.”
Make sure all of your settings are set up for friends only. You’ll want to check these settings at least once a month because Facebook is always messing with privacy.
But let’s say the theft is beyond your photo. Following are seven things you must do to protect yourself:
- Call one of the major credit reporting services and put a fraud alert on your account. Check out Equifax, Experian, or TransUnion.
- Call the credit card companies and alert them to the fraudulent activity, especially if they’ve managed to open accounts in your name.
- Contact your local police. When you talk to the detectives, write down their names and badge numbers as most fraud alerts will require this.
- Call the Federal Trade Commission and file a complaint. They can be reached at 1-877-IDTHEFT.
- Change ALL of the passwords you use online. If you need a safe and secure place to keep your passwords, check out these services.
- Set up a Google alert on your name so you are alerted if there is any suspicious activity.
- See Identity Thief when it hits movie theaters next month.
Even if it’s as “harmless” as someone stealing your photos or pretending to be your girlfriend long-distance, the betrayal felt is very real.

This is really scary….I keep telling my son to never post personal information on FB…or anywhere for that matter. There are also those out there just waiting to take advantage of us if we let them.
@PattiRoseKnight It goes way beyond that, too. Make sure his privacy settings are set so only his friends can see his stuff. It can’t prevent his photos from being taken from Google, but it does prevent some of this other stuff.
@ginidietrich actually he’s not on FB much so deactivated his page (whew)….I think the 18 year-olds don’t want hang where the parents hang. Plus he works and isn’t on much anyway.
It’s sad that there is no real way to prevent, or even stop this. As long as someone needs only an email address to set up a Facebook account, there will always be fraud. This is the dark side of social media. People have issues, and can be totally anonymous online. It’s the perfect breeding ground for crime. Thanks for drawing attention to this. Your list of action steps is great. We need to keep encouraging people to watch over their privacy carefully. I really don’t think the social platforms are as concerned about privacy as they are about getting our data, IMO. It’s up to us to be proactive.
@cksyme I spoke to a college class last fall and, during the Q&A, a young woman raised her hand and said I was too strict on privacy and I needed to loosen my “rules” a bit. I asked her to explain. She said she posts things on Facebook, leaves them up for only a few days, and then deletes them so no one can find them, especially her future bosses or her parents. I asked her for her name and opened Google on the big screen in front of the entire classroom. I typed in her name and the second result was her Facebook account. I clicked on it and silently enjoyed showing her how all those things she deleted were found with two clicks of a button. She was horrified (I was gleeful) and she vowed to watch her privacy settings and what she posts more consistently.
@ginidietrich Wow–what a great visual. I do something similar when working with student-athletes. Their reaction always amazes me. It’s like the State Farm commercial–you know the one–the woman who finds the “French model”on the internet. People’s understanding of internet reality is skewed.
@ginidietrich @cksyme I solve it by posting everything publicly except for cute quotes from my children. I only post those semi-privately because I don’t want to be deleting spam comments from those posts.
@AmyVernon @cksyme I have a similar philosophy: If I don’t want the world to know it, I don’t post it. Though, I recently stopped using Foursquare because someone saw me check in to a movie theater and waited outside until the movie was over so he could meet me. It was harmless, but I was totally creeped out.
@ginidietrich @cksyme Oh, ick! I often don’t check in until I’m leaving a location. And I find 4sq useful when I go to conferences. But that is very creepy.
@ginidietrich Oh gawd! That would’ve totally freaked me out!
@AmyVernon @ginidietrich @cksyme I have never used Foursquare, and I never will – and it’s EXACTLY because of what you have said here GIni. That is beyond creepy. People don’t need to know where I m at any given time (and more importantly, the fact that I’m NOT at home!).
@ginidietrich @AmyVernon @cksyme I’ve never even set up an account on Foursquare. I think anyone with a…shall we say…overly persistent person in their past immediately recoils at the idea of check ins.
@belllindsay @AmyVernon @ginidietrich @cksyme Super creepy…i read a similar story once about a journalist who recieved a breathy phone call at a restaurant he had checked into on foursquare and he never used it again. ever since, then, I won’t use it. Then again, it could be useful…I read another story where a girl used it so her friends and family knew the last place she was if she ever went missing. Either way, it’s kinda creepy.
@ginidietrich I’ve done the same thing during presentations where I was told the same thing about being too strict. Love the reaction of horror.
Hearing about ID theft any any fashion and seeing it in action are two different things. Thank you for post today. It made me shiver to see Amy’s photo used on a fraud account. While I don’t know her, it is creepy to think that people would do this.
@lbatzer Isn’t that awful? When I saw it earlier this week, I actually gasped out loud.
@ginidietrich @lbatzer It’s really creepy to see your own face looking back at you with someone else’s name under it. Especially someone who likes Subway. I mean, REALLY.
This goes beyond the ‘people lie on their personal information’ which the main driver behind the flaw with influence which I think even @dannybrown can’t get around. Look at the info on my facebook page. Nothing is real. In fact you and I got piercings in the Ukraine per my timeline.
And we know about fake accounts and how nothing is safe on Facebook.
@HowieG We did?! Did we have fun? Where are the piercings?
@ginidietrich I got my septum pierced and you had both eye brows. Facebook doesn’t require proof of anything for timeline. Yes we had a blast.
@HowieG @ginidietrich Thank you for keeping it PG.
This made me ‘oh my god’ earlier this week when I saw it. It is really nuts. And on the heels of that I discovered that Facebook had reset my default privacy setting to public posts. It is a matter of always being diligent I guess.
@katskrieger Mr. D and I JUST had this very conversation. Facebook always resets and plays with the settings. We have to be diligent in checking them consistently.
I’m so glad you addressed this subject and provided some “how to” tips for anyone who experiences this in the future. It’s hard to believe that anyone would go to the lengths this “person” did in stealing @AmyVernon ‘s images but clearly it happens. And will happen again. It is so important that we talk about this and remind people to be careful.
@allenmireles And thank you for your help in getting images and background information.
@ginidietrich @allenmireles Allen I saw your photos on P-Diddy’s Facebook Account. The one with you sporting the thick gold chain.
@HowieG @ginidietrich I thought it was a good look for me. And you know Gini can wear anything.
Scary stuff. And despite our conversation yesterday, I”m not sure I want to meet you now. I have a feeling you are really some guy named seanmcginnis
@KenMueller seanmcginnis Trust me…if I could have no relation to Sean, I would.
@ginidietrich seanmcginnis But I fear you really LOOK like him.
@KenMueller seanmcginnis I don’t. I’m too short. And I have hair.
Wow, goosebumps! WHAT on earth?! How did Amy find out?
@AmeenaFalchetto1 An acquaintance who had mutual friends with this person saw the avatar pic and immediately recognized me.
@AmyVernon Wow, so if they’d not had a mutual friend it could have gone undetected?! SCARY!
@AmeenaFalchetto1 Yep. Reminds me that I need to check for my photos on TinEye/Google Image Search more often.
@AmyVernon @AmeenaFalchetto1 Okay, perhaps I am having a brain dead moment, but how would an image search work with ferreting out this sort of thing, if the image (of you) was associated with another person’s name? I just did an image search, and my name is connected to a lot of other people’s pictures, because, for example, I’ve commented on a blog, or used their photo in a blog post, etc.
@jenzings It’s not perfect but you can search in google images for your pics and visually similar ones. Drag and drop a profile pic and you’ll see some weird stuff. I do this a lot to find the pesky people out there who use my illustrations without crediting me as the artist!
@jenzings @AmeenaFalchetto1 No, an image search where it’s searching the images. TinEye is the simplest to do that.
@AmyVernon @jenzings TinEye doesn’t seem to pull up any of my images – yet the Google Image search I described shows all the places the image has been used.
@AmeenaFalchetto1 Crazy, huh?? You’re very smart about BiP. You even go as far as to post just pictures of the back of her head. I think that’s really smart.
