Why are Identity Checks Important?
Identity Checks are the foundation of most background checks. These checks confirm your candidate's identity, and right to work in the United States. By verifying certain identifying information, we are then able to order the best criminal background checks based on what we find.
Identity Checks with Social Security Numbers
Social Security Number Trace
The SSN Trace validates a match with the information your applicant has entered, identifies any alias names the candidate may use, as well as provides a residential address history used to define the jurisdictions to conduct additional searches in.
CBSV (Consent Based SSN Verification)
With the consent of the candidate, CBSV can verify if the SSN holder's name, date of birth, and SSN match SSA's records with the Social Security Administration, directly. CBSV returns a match verification of "yes" or "no." If records show that the SSN holder is deceased, CBSV returns a death indicator. CBSV does not verify an individual's identity.
Form I-9 and E-Verify Solutions
I-9 verifies the legal "right to work" status via seamless integration to the Dept. of Homeland Security and the U.S. Citizen and Immigration Service (USCIS).
Form I-9 verifies identity and right to work status in the United States. On the form, an employee must confirm his or her employment authorization. The employee must also present identity documents which are then verified.
