I'm wondering, I've used the same name for over 25 years. I am thinking I won't have to publish my name in the papers because I changed my name and moved twice due to an assault. That's the rules that I found out via the County website. However, I recently acquired my birth certificate and found out my birth year is different than I've always thought. I will need to change that as well, but I'm worried I'm going to be in trouble with SS, etc., as I am already on SS and medicare. If they think I lied purposely, I could be in for a whole lot of trouble. But I have to change my name legally to get a Real ID or Passport. So, what's a gal to do?
