Out of all of our Social Security number (SSN) based searches, our ID Trace Pro has the most selective scope. Only the top 8 “best match” results are reported to you based on TransUnion records, making it our preferred SSN-based solution.
The ID Trace Pro uses a candidate’s SSN, name and address to reveal residential history and alias names for further criminal background checks. This type of search is more commonly known as an address trace or skip trace.
Residential history related to a candidate is obtained from TransUnion credit bureau. And any undisclosed locations we uncover are essential identifiers for additional state and county criminal history searches.
Results returned include:

Verify that a Social Security number (SSN) does not belong to a deceased individual, multiple people or to an individual with a different date of birth not consistent with the date of issuance of the SSN
