That's funny, but seriously you should contact them.  I'm not sure what you are getting, but I would want my correct name listed if it's coming from the government

A couple years back the government was under the impression my dad was dead and sent a bunch of forms etc. to that effect. He was sure surprised to hear about his passing. I guess all it takes is a typo somewhere down the line.

Then this is something you need to get straightened out. Could be somebody used your SS number somewhere along the way. It seems insignificant to a lot of people but some stupid mexican was able to change the name on all my magazine subscriptions one year. They were still coming to MY house but with her name. I guess the next step was to change the address.  SMH I finally got it changed back. That was all that happened.  I keep a close eye on my stuff.   My  credit cards, financial reports, everything.

That's awfully nice of the government to give you a special nickname. How lucky you must feel. And yes, as the others have suggested here, I would recommend looking into that so it doesn't cause you problems.

You really should get that checked out, as it could affect Medicare, Social Security, all sorts of stuff.

sort of been there,,,,,  My given name is "Teresa Lynn "  but the social security office sent me my social security card with my name spelled  "Theresa Lynn"   My mom tried to change it for years ,,,  birth cert,,,,  baptism cert  and nothing.   She finally got them to change it when I started school.   Then when I got married and changed my Last Name  it started all over again  with the first name,,,,,,,,,,,,,  they kept putting an H in and I don't have an H in my name.   Took them almost two months to get it changed again.   But at least it is right ,,,,,  for the time being. 

And it will effect things you need if your social security is needed !!!!

According to the government, my dad is a girl.  Thought THAT was pretty interesting!  And, no, he isn't a trans.  He really is a male.
