Replace lost Medicare card, manage Social Security benefits online

If your Medicare card is lost or damaged, you can get a replacement easily and securely online.

The Social Security Administration has launched a new service as part of its existing "My Social Security" portal. After you create an account and log on, you can request a new Medicare card, which will be sent to you in about 30 days.

If you don't have a My Social Security account, you can get instructions on how to create one at nwsdy.li/myss. Once you have an account, you can manage Medicare and Social Security benefits, including adding or changing direct deposit information. Those not yet collecting benefits can see how much they can expect to receive based on their work history.
