How is the Consent Based Social Security Number Verification different from the Social Security Number Trace

A social security trace is a tool used to pull back residential history on an individual. This residential history includes the previous cities and counties where the individual resided in which Crimcheck then searches for criminal records. The trace consists of information from the three credit bureaus, Experian, TransUnion and Equifax. These credit bureaus simply report on an individual’s activity. It is not reported by the Social Security Administration.

Bottom Line: The Social Security Trace provides the year and state of issuance along with jurisdictional information (information provided by credit bureaus). The CBSV includes data directly from the Social Security Administration and which matches personal identifiers with the social security number.

The CBSV does not confirm or provide proof of an individual’s identity. The “yes” or “no” simple acknowledges the SSN was checked against the records with the Social Security Administration.

Notes on the Consent Based Social Security Verification:

  • The CBSV does not and should not take the place of I-9 verification or E-Verify as it does not satisfy the Department of Homeland Security’s requirements.
  • The CBSV also does not verify an individual’s identity nor authenticates the individual’s right to work in the U.S.
  • The CBSV does not allow the use of an electronic signature; the individual must physically sign the authorization form that is specific to CBSV in order to proceed.
