Do I need a new social security card?
If your Social Security card says "Valid for Employment with CIS Authorization," you will not need to get your Social Security card changed. If it says "Not Valid for Employment," you will need to get it changed. If you need to get your Social Security card changed, take your OPT card, a job offer letter, your I-20, your passport, and a picture ID with you to a local Social Security office.
