A social security trace is the first step in developing a comprehensive background check. It is an extremely cost-effective tool that is used to identify an applicant’s address history and discovering any other names that they may have used in the past.
If you don’t use the address and name history provided in a social security trace, you have to rely on the applicant’s supplied information. A dishonest applicant with something to hide will be less than forthcoming about where or under what name he or she was convicted. Performing a social security trace gives Check2Hire the ability to lay out a road-map for conducting a thorough criminal record search.
