Protecting organizations by screening applicants at every level.
Do You Know Who You’re Hiring?
An applicant’s identity is at the very foundation of the pre-employment screening process. An identity check helps you know who you’re hiring and if he or she is being honest about their personal information. This is often one of the primary components of a more comprehensive background check, providing the information needed to proceed. These checks include:
Address & SSN (Social Security Number) Trace
This screening tool is used to ascertain if the social security number provided matches the applicant’s information and may include the year and state of issuance. This search may reveal other names used by the applicant and provides a history of the applicants addresses. Information from the Address & SSN Trace is used to identify jurisdictions and alias names to be searched. The Death Index is cross-referenced.
CBSV (Consent Based SSN Verification)
CSBV is a method of matching personal identifiers directly to Social Security Administration (SSA) Master File and Death Index. CSBV provides compliance with state and federal regulatory requirements involving customer identification programs, Red Flags Rule, Fannie Mae Loan Quality Initiative, Dodd-Frank Wall Street Consumer Protection Act, and more.
CIV (Consent Identity Verification)
CIV is an additional security measure that can assist in confirming the identity of the consumer before submitting their information for screening. The consumer is prompted with questions only they know, thus confirming their identity. The CIV questions can include factual statements for verification, such as, a previous address, a vehicle they have owned or leased, or a phone number they have been associated with.
Passport Verification confirms an applicant's identity by validating the information on their passport, as well as verifying the passport format through a global database.
