A social security number verification and address history is typically the starting point for every background check we offer here at 3rd Degree Screening. It’s an important tool that identifies names and address that are associated with a specific social security number. In addition to the applicant’s past addresses and movement patterns, the results will also indicate if there were any previously used names or other aliases that should be investigated.

When you start your hiring process with a thorough background check, you’ll be sure to avoid giving an opportunity to any potentially questionable characters.
