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:

Current/previous addresses
Social Security number

Built-in fraud alerts

ID Trace Pro includes a Hawk Alert “red flag” warning system. This alerts you to inconsistent information or fraudulent activities on file with TransUnion credit bureau.

ID Trace Pro can help you:

Identify a concise list of AKAs, maiden names, nicknames and other spelling variations
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

Search turnaround time:

Q. Why is an on-site inspection required for this search?

A. Since the information is obtained from a credit bureau, we are required to confirm that your business physically exists before giving a TransUnion report to you. With the risk of identity theft and web-based fraud on the rise, this requirement from TransUnion helps to protect sensitive consumer information.

Q. Does the ID Trace Pro validate Social Security Numbers?

A. Yes and no.

Yes, the search does validate that the Social Security number (SSN) is real and still active. However, it DOES NOT validate that the SSN belongs to your candidate.

You do have a couple of options to validate the SSN:
