Security is a top priority and played a very important part in the design and development of our online background screening system. We pay close attention to high publicity threats such as viruses, denial of service attacks and other malicious activities over the Internet as well as to maintaining the integrity and confidentiality of sensitive application data such as credit reports, social security numbers and other personal identifying information.

Our programming/IT team uses the best, leading technology to secure our website and the environment in which it operates. This includes client authentication (Password controlled access), encryption of data, public-private key pair, firewalls, intrusion detection, filtering routers and data backups. Each of these components acts as a layer of protection to safeguard information from unauthorized users, deliberate wrongdoing and inadvertent loss.

There are NO minimum order requirements or contracts. Cancel anytime!

Between our automated system and the humans in our compliance team our results come back with some of the best turnaround times in the industry.


At the beginning of each month, we email out invoices for the screening ran the prior month. There are payment options on the invoice. We accept most forms of payment. (Direct ACH, Company Check, AMEX, MC, VISA).


To start a background check, you will only need your candidate’s full legal name, email address and state the job is in.

Your candidate will receive a link to a secure site where they can provide the rest of the information we need: Social Security number, date of birth, and current home address. Our electronic consent process, with built-in e-sign, keeps the entire process quick, easy, and accurate.

Of course, you can collect the candidate information yourself, if you prefer.

The Screening Source is considered a Consumer Reporting Agency (CRA) and therefore is mandated by the FCRA to comply with all FCRA guidelines, rules and regulations.

No, you have other options – you can submit the names to us via CSV spreadsheet file format. We will create a Batch Order for you. There is no additional charge for this service. Please contact us for more information.

Results are available on our secure, encrypted website, which you can access 24/7. There is no software to buy; it’s a free website offered exclusively to our clients. In addition, we can fully integrate your system with ours to eliminate any duplicate data entry.

We work with our clients to help determine the level of security they are seeking for a particular position. While you might want to check an applicant’s driving history, if that employee is not going to be driving for employment-related purposes, then it’s a waste of your resources.

The social security address trace report may NOT be used as the basis for adverse action. It is used to verify or correct information or as a tool for additional research. The social security address trace report does not signify someone’s eligibility to work in the US nor their immigration status.


Different names may show up on an SSN report which means the applicant may have gotten married or just changed their name entirely. The most common reason for an unrelated name on the SSN Trace is due to data entry errors when entering SSN on any applications or documents. This does not mean that someone else is using the applicant’s SSN. A SSN report may show “NO RECORDS FOUND” which could mean the number was entered incorrectly, or the applicant has very little or no address history or the individual may have recently been issued their social security number.
