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)
The Consent Based SSN Verification provides information regarding a subject's name and Social Security Number (SSN). A non-exclusive agreement has been entered into with the Social Security Administration (SSA) to verify whether a name and SSN matches the SSA's records. In addition to the information provided by the SSA, the report includes SSN issuing information and possible aliases tied to our criminal database. CBSV requires that a signed release is submitted prior to processing. 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.
