SSN Trace & ID Verification

Social Security Number Trace identifies individuals, their residential address history, and reported aliases based on a database of hundreds of sources. The aggregated databases are comprised of multiple sources of address history information, such as information compiled by credit bureaus, utility company billing records, USPS mail forwarding information and other similar sources. The results of this search tool are used to broaden the scope of a background check to include additional jurisdictions and potential previous names and addresses an applicant may have used.

Sex Offender Registry Search

Sex Offender Registry Search captures real time information from all 50 of the individual state's sex offender registries. The information can vary from state to state. For instance, Nevada has regulations that suppress this information, California provides reports to use in hiring decisions only if the position has any possible contact with vulnerable persons, and Oregon only returns information on the most serious level of sex offenders. This search combined with local and national criminal searches protects employers from unknowingly hiring an individual who has committed a sex crime.
