Social Security Number Search Verification - Search by SSN
Social security number verifications are a cornerstone of background checks in the U.S and the quickest, most effective way to verify the identity of an individual.
A Social security number trace results in a 7-10 year history of past and present addresses connected with that unique identifier. The SSN verification report also lists the names associated with those addresses, thereby ensuring that the background check has access to a full set of AKAs ("also known as") including aliases, maiden names, nicknames and names misspelled or variously transliterated across languages. The source information gathered via social security number verification makes this process an essential component in criminal history investigations and a valuable tool in maximizing the efficacy of other investigative searches.
