The ID Trace uses record sources to reveal select residential history and alias names associated with a candidate’s SSN for further background checks. Any previously undisclosed locations and names uncovered could be essential starting points for additional searches, including additional state and county criminal history searches. This type of search is also known as a social security number trace.

Identify names, including AKAs, maiden names, nicknames, and other spelling variations.
Locate available current and select historical addresses associated with the SSN.
Expand your search scope with ID trace results.
Background checks seek the truth about your candidates’ and employees’ connections with potential crimes. Screening products, packages, scope, actual order product mix, and methodologies used all contribute to how comprehensive a background check is.
