The first search you should perform when conducting a background check is a Social Security Number (SSN) check. The SSN check provides vital information for revealing an applicant's possible criminal record.
The SSN check reports the applicant's name related to the provided Social Security number as reported by the Social Security Administration and the three credit bureaus. Report information may include, but is not limited to, current and former address history, the applicant's age and/or date of birth, and the applicant's county of residence. Our Social Security number verification is processed in real time, which makes for an quick turnaround.
Consent Based SSN Verification (CBSV)
In addition to our regular SSN Verification product, we also offer Consent Based SSN Verification (CBSV). This product validates that a name and SSN match the data in the Social Security Administration's records. CBSV requires that a signed release is submitted prior to processing.
