I am stuck on this query which seems like it should be simple.
I have a table that has five columns:
member_id (PK)
last_name
first_name
social_security_no
birthdate

I am trying to find all records where a single person (same social_security_no and birthdate) has one or more different member_ids.
Any assistance is appreciated. Thanks.
