Social Security
Number Trace

Let’s talk about how our Social Security Number trace can enhance your background checks.

Not everyone believes honesty is the best policy. When it comes to candidates’ criminal history, details are important. You deserve verifiable truth. Our complete Social Security Number Trace, sometimes referred to as an Address History Search, is the foundation of criminal history research and the first step of any effective background check.

We scour thousands of data sources and 34 billion addresses across the U.S. to identify ideal locations to search.

Social Security Number Trace Technology

We know speed and precision are essential to pre-employment background screenings. Our acclaimed technology automatically translates the results of Social Security Number traces and, in seconds, searches county or state criminal records.

A Sterling social security trace:

  • Confirms up to 10 years of address history
  • Reveals any names used (includes aliases, maiden names, nicknames)
  • Common misspellings associated with the SSN

When you’re considering candidates, facts are essential. Our Social Security Number Trace supports your process with unrivaled speed and accuracy.
