Officer asked me at interview if I would be changing my last name to my husbands, I said yes. I haven't done it legally yet and we got a card with his last name on it. Is this legal? Can I just go and change last name to his? Do I need to notify USCIS?
This would appear to be an Immigration question, although it is in a marital setting (changing your name to your husband's). You would be best to consult an Immigration Attorney, and AVVO has hundreds in Illinois.
Marriage is a time when a person may legally change his or her name without having a separate court proceeding. You may take your certified marriage record to the Social Security office, and to your employer, and to any other place you would like to notify of your name change, so that your name matches in the Social Security register, your pay records, your green card, etc. Look into having your passport or other identity documents changed also. If you did not mean to change your name, you will need to rectify CIS records.
