Need to get a replacement Social Security Card for my 16 year old. Help!!!

Being unorganized at times we cannot find my sons SS Card and he needs a copy of it for his job. We did fill out the replacement form but need to supply ID. Problem is that we only have a birth certificate (doesn't count) and a student ID. I'm going to call the office again to figure out what else I can use because his student ID does not have his date of birth on it. Anyone deal with this recently?

"Identity

We can accept only certain documents as proof of identity. An acceptable document must be current (not expired) and show your name, identifying information (date of birth or age) and preferably a recent photograph. For example, as proof of identity we must see your:

U.S. driver's license.
State-issued non-driver identification card.
U.S. passport.
If you do not have one of these specific documents or you cannot get a replacement for one of them within 10 days, we will ask to see other documents. Any documents submitted, including the following, must be current (not expired) and show your name, identifying information (date of birth or age) and preferably a recent photograph:

Employee identification card.
School identification card.
Health insurance card (not a Medicare card).
U.S. military identification card."

Why do you need the SS card?

Have you tried contacting the Social Security Administration?

Many employers require you to bring in the actual card. You can’t just give them the number. My son has been through a number of jobs in the past few years so i’ve seen this requirement more than once.

That is exactly my problem.

Call your US Senator(s) if you can’t resolve it.

You can request a replacement card via the SS website. You have to create an account of course...

The school ID should work.
The requirements for a replacement card for a US born minor:

[www.ssa.gov]

You'll have to select Child and then Replacement.
It shows school ID as one of the options.

I'll get right on that. He has a SS number... I did talk with them (on hold for an hour) and they said his student ID is good enough.

When you get the replacement card, create a draft email with the subject: Where I put things. Then put the card in a safe place and write that location in the draft email for future reference. This is what my adult son did for these types of documents and other things that are not often needed and it has served him very well.

I lost my card over 30 years ago. Whenever I try to get a replacement online, I get the same error message as above. Finding time to actually go to the office is a pain. Hopefully, I'll be retiring within the next couple of years. As long as my checks deposit, I'm good.

I was curious after the issues above so I just went through the process to get a new card. They wanted another ID to cross check (a driver's license) and my various details. It then said, fine, will review and send....

and then redirected me to a non-existent page! And there is no evidence I went through the process.

We shall see if something arrives, but this is not really reliable as a solution...

OK 20 minutes later I get email telling me there is a message in my account:

This is proof of your application for a Social Security card submitted on November 15, 2021. You will receive an email within 5 business days after your application is reviewed. If your request is approved, you should have your card in about 2 weeks.

The Social Security Administration is required by law to limit replacement Social Security cards to three per year and ten per lifetime. Do not carry your Social Security card with you. Keep it in a safe location, not in your wallet.

Make an appointment at your local office so you can spend as little time as possible there.

I found my local SS office the saddest place I'ver ever been, and that's counting hospital emergency room visits.

Because of Covid, you can't just go to an office, you have to make an appointment. I found that out the hard way.

I got a replacement card online and in my case it was painless because I have a drivers license which they could verify virtually.
