If you have lost your card with your social security number on it, you are going to have to go through a pretty tiring procedure to get it back, or replaced. If you know for certain that you have completely lost your social security number, you can get your card replaced by following these instructions:

• Use the Internet or a phone book to find the number of your closest Social Security Services office and find out where they are located. Once you have done this, you will have to travel all the way to the office, which is hopefully not too much of a distance from your location, then walk in and stand in line.
• The queues, unfortunately, are said to be horrendous so make sure that you don't have much planned on the day that you go to pick up a new social security card. Eventually you will be called to the desk to talk to someone about your social security related issues and they can help you get a new, replaced social security card.
• Before you leave the house, however, do not forget to take some forms of photographic identification, such as a passport and your birth certificate. Without these, you will not be able to prove to the office that you are the person you claim to be and, given that it's an issue as important as social security, you won't have much chance of success without it.
• You will only get a temporary card on the day you apply for your new card, with the other being sent in the post. However, this does mean that you will have access to your social security number on the same day that you applied for it.
• Try to make a note of your SSN number somewhere that you deem incredibly safe in your home. That way you won't have to go through this again.

It's at the end of the report you fill out online.  I don't know if you can get another one if you've lost it.
