Pre-release Planning — Getting a Social Security Card While Incarcerated:

  1. Can I get a Social Security card while I am still incarcerated?

  2. How do I get a replacement card while I am incarcerated?

  3. How do I find out if my correctional facility has a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) agreement with the Social Security Administration (SSA)?

  4. How do I apply for my replacement card from inside?
