The U.S. Coast Guard’s National Maritime Center will issue duplicate Merchant Mariner Credentials free of charge to mariners whose credentials were lost or destroyed as a result of Hurricane Sandy.

To obtain an expedited replacement credential, mariners should fax a “statement of loss” to the National Maritime Center at +1 304-433-3416, or e-mail the statement to iasknmc@uscg.mil.

The statement should include: your full name; your date of birth; your mariner’s reference number (if you don’t know the reference number, include your social security number); the mailing address that the replacement credential should be sent to; your current phone number and/or e-mail address so NMC can contact you with any questions; and a description of the circumstances surrounding the loss/destruction of the credential.

NMC says it will make every effort to have duplicate credentials mailed out the next business day. Mariners can also submit a 719B Application containing the same information to one of the Regional Exam Centers.

If the old credential is unserviceable due to damage or the lost credential is subsequently found, please mail it to NMC, 100 Forbes Drive, Martinsburg, WV 25404.
