Will I need my Social Security Card or Social Security Number when I apply for a Passport?
Passport Services requires that you list your Social Security Number on your Passport application. The physical Social Security Card is not required but may serve as secondary identification if you are unable to provide primary identification. Please see Passport Services secondary ID page for more information.
