SSN Verification & Address History

The Social Security Number Verification and Address History is a useful tool to verify an applicant’s identity, uncover address history and alias names.

This service confirms the primary name and date of birth associated with a Social Security Number (SSN), verifies the issue date and location when available, as well as verifies the number with the Death Master Index. Using a variety of resources and databases, addresses and alias names associated with this SSN are also provided. This can be used as a basis for a more extensive criminal background check by identifying jurisdictions for a criminal or civil record search.

Key Takeaways:

  • Verify an applicant’s SSN, name and date of birth
  • Retrieve address history and alias names for use in more extensive searches
  • Primary source and third party database access for a broader scope of results

Commonly used as a foundation for background screening, the SSN Verification helps employers confirm the most basic information provided by an applicant – their identity.

For clients who expect the highest level of convenience and efficiency, our researchers can use the SSN Verification and Address History to automatically search jurisdictions belonging to your applicant for the 7 Year Misdemeanor & Felony Search.

Until June of 2011, an SSN was assigned using a sequence of numbers to indicate the approximate year of issuance as well as the state where the number was issued. Since this date, an SSN is randomly assigned without state or year association. As a result, information provided in an SSN Verification may vary by applicant.
