Social Security Number (SSN) Tracing

What is a Social Security Number Trace?

Our SSN tracing is important in properly identifying a candidate, making sure the background check gets the right results. The applicant’s date of birth, social security number, and address history will be developed and/or verified and will be compared to the data provided by the applicant. This is the essential initial step to providing an accurate background check.

An SSN trace includes:

 Confirming SSN, And Date of Birth
 Discovering aliases, nicknames, maiden names, and other names used
 Address history verification (County and States)

Identifying the correct information is vital to an accurate background check. Sutton Associates strives to provide the best results, ensuring the candidate hired is always the right fit.
