For complete instructions on applications for a Social Security card (including replacing a lost Social Security card), you should contact the regional SSA office in Manila, Philippines at FBU.Manila@ssa.gov.
All supporting documents with an application need to be certified by the U.S. Consulate. This is provided as a mail-in service only. Mail the following items to the U.S. Consulate General serving your area:
- The original documents
- A brief cover letter requesting the certifications for a Social Security application
- A self-addressed, Express Post or Registered Post (minimum A4 sized) envelope for the return of the original and certified copies of your documents to you
Please allow approx. 5 business days for our office to certify the documents and return them to you.
