The U.S. Department of state requires applicants to provide their Social Security Number on the passport application; however, the physical Social Security Card is not required.

Please note, a Social Security Card may serve as Secondary Identification if an applicant is unable to provide Primary Identification with their application. You can read more about primary vs. secondary identification here.
