Hi, i actually joined this forum to ask this question and i would appreciate any help that you guys can give. I recently lost my social security card. I'm a foreign born that became a citizen from my mother who applied. i believe I was five when i got my citizenship. I have my identification via Nevada Drivers License and UNLV ID but because I was not born in the US i don't have a U.S birth certificate. My mother doesn't know if she has a a consular report of birth, certificate of citizenship, or certificate of naturalization. Honestly I don't really know too much about it but I'm now 19 years old and because I got my passport when I was twelve and didn't renew it. I don't know how to show proof of citizenship. Again any information will be helpful!

There should be a certificate of birth in the country where you were born.

If your mother has a certificate of naturalization perhaps her application has your name on it.

Your American passport is all the proof you need that you are a citizen of the United States. It should be easy for you to obtain another.

If you go to Social Security office, give them your number they can look it up. If your mother claimed you on her taxes when you were younger, that would have your number on it. Good luck!

Renew your passport. Has to be in person. The old passport and a NV drivers license will do it.

You might try your old passport at Social Security.

Shouldn't be a big deal. Start by calling SSA. It's only a card, it's not to be used as ID anyway. You're not even supposed to carry it. Having been issued a number sometime in your life is what is important. That said, at ESD, we wouldn't give service to people who didn't have one, but that's because employers have to see one before they can allow you to work. However, a passport works too. I'm not even sure it has to be a current passport. After all you're the same person that you were when it was issued.
