When will I receive my child’s Social Security Card?

On average, it takes approximately 6-8 weeks from the time baby was registered at the hospital. However, it can vary depending on the state where you live. If you have not received your child’s social security card within six to eight weeks, please visit or contact your local Social Security office.
