Recently I replaced my 57 year old Social Security Card. The new one clearly says Do not laminate. Two Questions:#1 Why?#2 What is the downside/risk if I do laminate it?Many years ago I did laminate my original card and it certainly seems to have survived and functioned.According to the SSA:Is it illegal to laminate your Social Security card?No it is not illegal, but it’s best not to laminate your card. Laminated cards make it difficult, if not impossible, to detect important security features and an employer may refuse to accept it.The Social Security Act requires the Commissioner of Social Security to issue cards that cannot be counterfeited. We incorporate many features that protect the card’s integrity. That includes highly specialized paper and printing techniques—some visible to the naked eye and some not. Further, we continue to actively explore and adopt new technologies that hamper duplication.Ira
