How do I obtain a new social security card and number after the adoption is finalized?
Once you have the new birth certificate, you can visit your local social security office and obtain a new social security card with your child’s new name and social security number. The Social Security Administration will need to review the new certified birth certificate and the certified Final Judgment. For more information regarding obtaining a new social security number, please visit our Resources page for a link to the Social Security Administration.
