It’s a start. (click to enlarge)
Hi, I showed someone your name changing diagram *which I think is colorful and cool BTW) and they came back with the following (see email trail copied below) so I thought I’d send it to you to maybe add Medicare as they suggested. Wishing you all the best, Christina x
Re: Cool little name change diagram
Thank you, that’s awesome. I didn’t put it together myself but I will pass your comments on to the girl that made it, as I’m sure she will want to improve it however she can!
Wishing you a wonderful evening, and thank you once again! :)

You forgot Medicare — and you will grow old darling — and is a new because you will need to have your new birth certificate to prove ciizenship. I found that it also took special papers from your local SS office on the gender proof needed before I could get the F on my HMO (Senior) plan.
You need determination and persistence for this.
Good luck and go for it!
I have done them — but many many months!
Thanks for sharing this, Christina! Yes, I did forget some things. I don’t think you need to change your birth certificate for anything. The combination of a birth certificate and the name change court order should do it. Or a passport, right?
Oh hi Eva, Sorry it’s taken me a week to reply to you but I ended up in hospital for a few days after I lost my vision last Wednesday evening for about 2 hours! (Docs still trying to figure out why) Anyway…I don’t know but I have read that if you can change your birth certificate in your particular state then you should do that and here’s why:
>>Marriage and other legal documents. Some TS women have run into legal troubles when trying to get a marriage license, or even long after they’ve been married because of discrepancies on their birth certificate, especially sex designation. In one Texas case, a widow was denied the right to collect damages in her husband’s wrongful death suit, and her unchanged out of state birth certificate was used as evidence against her.
>>Travel: if you do not have a U.S. Passport, it is sometimes possible to travel to certain parts of the world using an original birth certificate. If you plan to do this, your name and sex should match your birth certificate.
>>Stealth/privacy: One less record of your old name floating around. For those who are living stealth, it’s possible that this information can come back to haunt them.
All the very best
Interesting. I do have a new passport with my new name on it. My birth certificate is out of state and I feel like it would be a bit of a slap in the face of my parents who gave me that name with every loving intention. I haven’t changed my gender and I’m not in a witness protection program, so I think I can give them that much. But thanks for the info!
Oh and sorry to hear about your troubles! I hope you’re better now.
