SSN Identity Check
Turnaround Time:  Instant
The most important part of the pre-employment background check process is the SSN Identity Check which ensures your organization is not the victim of a fraudulent application by someone with something to hide.  Credit bureau information verifies the applicant is associated with the SSN provided, address history, alias names and DOB (date of birth).  Also reveals discrepancies such as un-issued numbers, numbers issued to individuals already deceased and conflicting address information. The SSN Identity Check helps us identify where the applicant has lived to ensure a criminal background check is conducted in all counties where the applicant has lived.

Consent Based SSN Verification (CBSV)
Turnaround Time:  1 Hour or Less
Recommended when the SSN Identity Check is unable to verify the applicant’s Social Security Number (SSN).  PreHire is one of the first background screening companies to offer this service from the Social Security Administration (SSA).  The purpose of the Consent Based Social Security Number Verification System (CBSV) is to allow private businesses and government entities to verify that the name and Social Security Number (SSN) obtained from an applicant matches or does not match the data in SSA’s records. The information is matched against SSA’s Master File of Social Security Numbers, using Social Security number, name, date of birth and gender code (if available).  A signed SSA release form is required from the applicant for this verification.

E-Verify Form I-9 Verification (Post Hire Only)
Turnaround Time:  3 Hours or Less
As a Designated Agent of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Social Security Administration (SSA) for E-Verify Form I-9 Verifications, we can help you protect your business from costly fines by verifying that all new hires are who they say they are and by verifying that they have the right to work in the United States.  With the dramatic increase in fraudulent social security cards and other documents, simply making a copy of a new hire’s documents isn’t good enough.  Using the specific information contained on the Form I-9, we electronically verify the accuracy of Social Security Numbers, Immigration “A” numbers, and I-94 arrival/departure numbers and provide a DHS-issued unique verification number.
