A Person Search, or SSN Trace, provides information on an applicant’s past addresses and movement patterns based on name and social security number (SSN). In addition to returning information on an SSN, a Person Search provides a report with the following: full name and/or alternate names used by an applicant, dates at listed addresses, age, and date of birth, and available phone information. Person Search is an investigative starting point for developing a more complete background check. Additionally, the report includes information on the validity of the SSN, including the state and year of issuance.
