Do you consider the 'jones' and 'Jones' different entries?  In other words, if you had 'Green' and 'green', would 2 also show up in the results?

Anyway, you can start with something like this.
SELECT SSN
FROM your_table_name
GROUP BY SSN
HAVING COUNT(DISTINCT LAST) > 1
;

There are some other solutions, but this one should work.  If the answer to the question above is the rows with case differences should be treated the same, just make sure your collation is case insensitive.
