I have never had an employer ask to see my Social Security card, they just asked me for my number. (I last started with a new employer in 1978 so things may have changed.) For years I carried it in my wallet, but finally realized that made no sense and put it away somewhere safe. I might even be able to find it if I looked long enough.

I get a laugh out of the places that sell aluminum SS cards, "perfect to carry in your wallet or purse for identification purposes".
