Government organizations and professional entities require SSN verification for identification confirmation. What is a SSN Verification Check?
An SSN verification is a search of more than 190 million consumer records in the credit bureau files. The social security number search or verification warns when a Social Security number may never have been issued, may have been issued to a person who has been reported deceased, currently being used by other individuals (lists up to four names using the number), or has been issued so recently that the number may belong to a child. Basically, the SSN check is the verification of the current status of the identity of an indiscvidual.
A Million-Dollar Question! Can I look up my Social Security Number Online?
The short answer is YES! You can perform an online search and find out your SSN. However, you will need to go through a qualified company or agency authorized to perform your SSN search. Remember, not all websites and agencies can conduct an SSN report on you as per the FCRA laws. A Consumer Reporting Agency, (CRA) is an authorized provider of this information, and hence only an authorized CRA is allowed to provide you with the results.
