  • Insight into character
  • Reveals problem areas with personal situations
  • Can be an indicator of personal integrity

  • Avoid unnecessary liability

Social Security Search

A critical step in the identification process of any background check, this search, taken from credit repository information, directory assistance listings and other identification databases, will provide confirmation of applicant's current and previous residence and work addresses. This search is also useful to determine variations in the name, utilization of alias names and social security number discrepancies. When used in conjunction with a criminal search, this information can serve as a guide for determining the appropriate criminal jurisdiction to investigate.

  • Reveal hidden gaps and other identities

Criminal Records Search

A critical part of every background check is the criminal records search. Federal, State and County Searches provide case number, date filed, charge and disposition.

Previous Employment Verification

An often overlooked aspect of the employment screening process, this type of verification is essential to confirm the information provided on resumes and applications. In many instances, this information is not always available to prospective employers as previous employers, fearing potential liability situations, are often reluctant to disclose negative information. Previous employers are more likely to report to a third party, particularly when contacted by an experienced professional investigator familiar with interview techniques and governing regulations.

  • Accurate information for decision making
  • Save time and money on routine tasks
  • Scripted verification for greater detail
