How does it work?
The backgroundchecks.com system goes through the following steps to create the report for a US OneTRACE:
- With a full name including first, middle and last name, and the social security number (SSN), we report the state and the approximate date of issuance of the SSN for Social Security Numbers issued prior to the Social Security Administration's (SSA) randomization initiative started in June 25, 2011.
- We then run the SSN through the SSA Death Master Index and alert you if the SSN belonged to a deceased person. This allows you to better identify and prevent identity fraud.
- Next, we run a name and address history based on the SSN, to obtain a list of alias names, including maiden names.
How do I use the information from the US OneTRACE search?
The information returned is a very broad list of names and addresses associated with an SSN. This information can be used to compare against the name and address history provided by the subject and can be the basis for deciding to order additional criminal history searches for certain names or jurisdictions. This information must not be used to make an adverse decision about the subject of the report.
