Yes, you can show them your green card and they will take your current SSN and send you a new one without any 'blah blah' underneath it.

Good luck !

DO NOT let them take your SSA card until you receive the new one.

http://policy.ssa.gov/poms.nsf/lnx/0100201080

RM 00201.080 Field Office (FO) Disposal of Returned Social Security Number (SSN) Cards

2. Card Returned With Request For Replacement Card or New SSN

If the applicant has a card and requests a replacement card (duplicate or corrected) or a new SSN:

Ask the applicant to return the old SSN card. (If the applicant does not have the card with him or her, remind the applicant to return the old card to SSA for destruction or to keep the old card in a secure place [not in a wallet or purse]).

NOTE: Do not forcefully confiscate the SSN card if the applicant refuses to relinquish it. Similarly, return the old SSN card if the applicant requests that it be given back.

Just go into your local SSA office with your I-551 card. Status will still need to be verified before the card can be issued.
