Social Security Card

Can someone please tell me how long it takes to get a SS card in LA County? Our son adoption was finalized in Sept 2007. We don't have the amended birth certificate.....I know this has been addressed before, but I can't find the answer. Who do I need to call?
Thanks for any info

Social security website

Here is the Social Security website and information about applying.
Social Security Number and Card

You can download the application and either turn it into a local office or mail it in.

It was really fast to get a duplicate card for FD. I don't know if it's your first one.

It's pretty easy to make an appointment. Here's the telephone number from the SS website:

By calling 1-800-772-1213, you can use our automated telephone services to get recorded information and conduct some business 24 hours a day.

If you cannot handle your business through our automated services, you can speak to a Social Security representative between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Good luck!
