Lost Selective Service registration card. Does it matter?

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Interview letter for N-400 asked me to bring this card in. I have no clue in the world what happened to it. I can find out from the SSA site that I registered, and that site also allows me to print up something affirming this. Surely that's sufficient? Otherwise, I don't know how long it would take to get SSA to send me a new card, which would simply say what their website says...

I can order a replacement: https://www.sss.gov/ack.htm

But on the website I can also "PRINT Official Letter of Verification:"

The online letter claims to "certifies officially" one's registration.

*UPDATE* I called the SS number and to my surprise didn't wait at all to talk to somebody. The guy told me that citizenship would accept their online printed letter and I didn't need a replacement card. Granted, he isn't going to interview me, but hopefully somebody else who googles lost selective service card will find this thread.

You shouldn't need the card; just take proof of registration.

If the interviewer doesn't like your printout, he/she may ask for an official letter, but that's unlikely.
