The starting point for any background screening
To ensure the validity of your candidate, the first search you should perform when conducting a background screening is a Social Security number (SSN) check.
A SSN check helps verify that applicants are who they claim to be, and helps employers minimize risk from a fraudulent resume or dishonest credentials. SSN report information may include, but is not limited to current and former address history, age and/or date of birth, and county of residence. The SSN trace provides vital information for revealing an applicant's possible criminal record.
Consent Based SSN Verification
The Consent Based SSN Verification provides information regarding a subject's name and Social Security Number (SSN). CBSV does not verify identity, citizenship, employment eligibility, nor does it interface with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) verification system. CBSV verifications do not satisfy DH's I-9 requirements.
CBSV requires a signed release submitted prior to processing.
