Personal History and ID Verification

Address and SSN Trace

The SSN Trace is an instant search that will confirm the validity of the SSN provided, include the year and state of issuance, and determine if the number is listed on the Master Death Index. It will also confirm association with the name provided, but it should be noted this is not a definitive verification of assignment to the name provided (see Consent Based SSN Verification below). This search also retrieves the address history associated with the SSN, and uses that information to auto-populate certain searches, such as county, state and federal criminal searches. While the addresses may be viewed on the individual search within your account, they cannot be included on the final report; in accordance with the FCRA (address source data is not verifiable).

Driving History/Motor Vehicle Records

easyBackgrounds provides driving history records for all 50 states and for any level each state allows (license validity, insurance history or commercial history, for example.) Levels of available information, access to that information and fees are extremely variable from state to state, and some require an additional release form and handling, which we provide.

Credit Reports for Employment Purposes

Credit reports for employment purposes differ from credit reports that are used for evaluating credit-worthiness, insurance and other financial purposes. Employment-related credit reports do not include a credit score, date of birth or individual account numbers. The credit reporting bureaus require a site inspection and verification of the business entity making requests, prior to granting access. Users should check their state regulations regarding the use of credit reports in making employment decisions, as several states restrict their use.
