It makes sense that they need to see the original but I just wouldn't send it. I can't wait on updating my SS card until it's possible going into the office in person again.

I prefer to go in person rather than send the original documents, we worked hard and paid a lot of money for that document

Is it possible to apply for passport first, then use the passport (or a copy of passport bio page) instead to update the social security status?

 

 There is no urgent reason to update Social. Many people go years without updating it post naturalization. Not updating social doesn’t stop/ prevent any of your other ‘citizen’ activities. I wouldn’t get too hung up on updating the social with the offices closed at this time.

Only important if you want to retire outside US without having to come back 6 months at a time every year.
