TAT (2011): 8.67 hrs. | Form SSA-89
A Social Security Number (SSN) Name Match officially matches the applicant’s name, SSN, DOB and gender directly from the Social Security Administration (SSA). It also, cross-references this information with the Death Master Index (DMI) to insure the SSN is not that of a deceased person, adding yet another layer of protection from identity thieves. The SSN Name Match uses a Consent Based Social Security Number Verification (CBSV) process.
A SSN Name Match cannot be used for only “Identification Purposes”. It must be used in conjunction with other search types when performing a background check of an applicant for hire. Additionally, a SSN Name Match does NOT give the applicant the right to work in the U.S.
