DES MOINES, Iowa — Iowa is now one of seven states with a program to help you replace an important piece of identification.

Iowans can now replace a lost or stolen Social Security card online.

The cards are often requested by banks or prospective employers.

To request a new card, you will need a state-issued ID or driver’s license. The request will not allow a name change or other change to information on the new card.
