According to Pennsylvania's REAL ID page, you need a SS Card.

You must present your social security card when applying for a REAL ID. Your card must be original.

The name on your social security card MUST MATCH the name on your proof of identity document.

If you can't find your social security card, you can get a replacement card from the Social Security Administration at no cost, and you may qualify to order a replacement card online.
