Ordering an AHV card

If you lose your AHV card, or if your personal details change, apply for a new card.

What do I need to do if I lose my OASI (national insurance) card?

Do not worry if you lose your OASI card. Your claim to pension benefits does not hinge on the card; you do not need show it to receive your pension. Your OASI number also appears on your health insurance card. If you lose your OASI card, and would like to replace it, contact your OASI compensation office to report the loss and to request a new card.
