Someone used my Social Security number to open a credit card account. Can I get a new social security number?

  • It’s unlikely the Social Security Administration will issue a new number for limited identity theft. In fact, it would probably create a new set of problems for you. Remember that your Social Security number is connected to your employment, tax, education and medical records. Seeking a new Social Security number is only considered in extreme situations.
