    Please explain first, how is it the names are different. Did you get married? How is it your mom won't help you ?

    I would contact the Social Security Administration and request a copy of the application for Social Security number which, presumably, your mother filed when you were a child. Once you have that, Get a certified copy of your birth certificate and send it, along with a copy of the application, and an application to correct your name (SSI should have such a form; look online) in the Social Security Administration's records.

    I would direct this to a regional or national office, if the local SSI office isn't able to help you.

    By the way, neither a Social Security card nor a birth certificate are, strictly speaking, legitimate forms of identification. Do you have a picture ID, such as a driver's license or passport?
