Lost Social Security Card

So on my way home from Jiujitsu, I used my school id to get on the bus back to campus. Then I put it in my wallet and went off my merry way. When I got to campus I realized my wallet was gone. I know I'm not supposed to walk around with my social security card or permanent resident card but I needed them to get past the checkpoint (in falfurias, texas) and that's information they ask you if you get stopped. I forgot to take them out when I got here, and hence my situation.

In that wallet was my:
School ID
Texas ID
Social Security Card
Permanent Resident Card
2 bank debit cards
20 dollars

I've never had this happen before. I am reporting my lost cards in the morning and gettinga new school ID but its the Texas ID, the Social Security and my permanent resident card that worry me. So what can I do?

    The Social Security Card, you can apply for a copy, like.. 10 in your lifetime I do believe, so that's easy. It's even free.

    Not sure about those other ones though, it should just be a matter of contacting who you got them from and letting them know that you lost them.

    Don't report your debit cards lost in the morning, report them now. Every bank I've ever done business with has had a 24-hour line for that.

    I did but the guy on the line couldn't do anything about it because apparently they couldnt find my records in their computer.

    Keep bugging them about it until they do find your records in the computer. Otherwise, some jackass could be running amuck with your cards and stealing all your moola.

    Not only that, but since these are debit cards and not credit cards, that's YOUR money they'll be doing this with. The bank will have to replace it if they find fraud, but until they do, the money is gone. You'll also be liable for the first $50 as well with some banks.

    So yeah, call now.
