SECURE DUPLICATE CARDS
Duplicate social security account
.cards were being Issued Nebraskans
at the rate of 19 per working day
in October, according to Leo W.
Smith of the Lincoln office of the
Social Security board.
Approximately 450 duplicate cards
were given to Nebraskans during that
month, Mr. Smith stated. In the
same perjod. 4,787 new numbers were
. "The loss of social security cards
works a hardship upon everyone to
the employee who must have his
number, to his employer who must
report the number to the federal gov
ernment, and to the Social Security
board which must Issue new numbers
upon request." Mr. Smith said. "To
avoid the loss of the number, the em
ployee should write the number in
several places where It can be found,
and should keep the lower half of
Vis social security card In a place
where it will not be easily lost."
Workers losing their social se
curity numbers should not ask for
new ones, but should request deupli
cates. Duplicate numbers can be ob
tained at Nebraska offices of the So
cial Security board In Lincoln, Om
aha, and North Platte.
