Social Security Number Trace

Social Security Number Traces are the backbone of every background check.


A background check starts with a Social Security Number Trace. We take the applicant's Social Security Number and check it against multiple public record databases and credit header sources. This returns full legal names and addresses, and confirms we found the right individual. The previous addresses help guide the screening process, because they show us where to start searching for court and criminal and records. A Social Security Number Trace reveals:
  • Full names
  • Aliases
  • Previous addresses
  • Jurisdictions

Requirements & Notes

  • The applicant's name and Social Security Number must be provided.
  • Average turnaround time depends on the type of background screening package you select.‚Äč
