SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER TRACE
The applicant's social security number is traced through a vast resource of more than 400 data sources including the national credit bureaus.  This extremely useful tool is imperative in uncovering any additional names, aliases or addresses that the applicant may have utilized, but chose not to reveal during the application process.  Furthermore, when combined with a criminal history, the social security trace is invaluable in making sure all known names and jurisdictions are encompassed while conducting the search.
 
Secondly, the trace will validate the year and state in which the Social Security Administration issued the number.  This information can be useful in uncovering potentially fraudulent social security numbers.
ADULT ABUSE REGISTRY
Protecting at risk cientele is of paramount importance to healthcare providers. This search will query the Adult Protective Services (APS) registry in the specified states and return details on whether or not the subject has been actively investigated for reports of abuse.
BANK ACCOUNT VERIFICATION
When conducting a tenant screening background check, TruDiligence can perform an interview with the prospective tenant's current financial institution.  The cost is $8.00 per account verification.  The information returned generally includes:
 
Bank Name
Account Type
Account Number
Date Opened
Current Status
CIVIL RECORD SEARCHES
Civil records are a group of public records that pertain to civil registry records, civil family matters and non criminal civil offenses. These records vary a lot because of the nature of the information that is recorded. By definition, cvil pertains to citizens and there are a multitude of different records that define what is recorded.

Pricing is per name, per jurisdiction searched and may vary in some jurisdictions. Less than 10 percent of the counties charge court-imposed fees on all records ordered.  These fees are billed over and above the record retrieval costs.  Contact us for a detailed listing of counties with extra costs.

Time Saving Tip: Our system provides time saving functionality which can automatically assign this search type based on known address hisotry for a specified period.
CONSENT BASED SSN VERIFICATION
CBSV verifies whether a name and social security number (SSN) combination match the data in SSA's records. The submitted information is matched against SSA's Master File of Social Security numbers (SSNs). The matching elements include social security number, name and date of birth. Each SSN and name combination submitted to CBSV will be returned with a yes or no verification code indicating the submission either matches or does not match the SSA's records. If applicable, we will report a death indicator when SSA records reflect that the SSN holder is deceased. Please note that the results obtained from CBSV do not confirm or authenticate "proof of identity".
 
CBSV requires the written consent of the SSN holder, and the verification results can be used only for the reason the number holder specifies.
COUNTY LEVEL COURT RECORDS
When conducting a pre-screen background investigation, a criminal history is of utmost importance.  These searches typically are placed in two main categories: arrest records and court records.  The use of each category has its strengths and weaknesses, so it is important for you to evaluate what you are trying to achieve to determine which is best for your application.

County Level court records typically are housed within the courthouse at the county level.  To simplify the system, each county jurisdiction typically is broken into three levels.  The first and highest level is the district court, sometimes referred to as superior court.  At this level, you generally will find most felony cases.

The second level  is the county court.  At this level, you will find most serious misdemeanor cases.

The lowest level is the municipal court, sometimes referred to as city court.  At this level, you typically will find most minor misdemeanors and petty offenses, usually cases where the individual simply was issued a summons to appear in court.

When conducting a County level Court Record Search, TruDiligence always will search the first and second level courts, where available.  Municipal courts can be searched, but are considered a special request and will involve an additional charge.

Pricing is per name, per jurisdiction searched and may vary in some jurisdictions. Less than 10 percent of the counties charge court-imposed fees on all records ordered.  These fees are billed over and above the record retrieval costs.  Contact us for a detailed listing of counties with extra costs.

Time Saving Tip: Our system provides time saving functionality which can automatically assign this search type based on known address hisotry for a specified period.

The Office of the Inspector General (OIG) was established in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to identify and eliminate fraud, waste and abuse in the department's programs and to promote efficiency and economy in departmental operations. The OIG carries out this mission through a nationwide program of audits, inspections and investigations. In addition, the OIG has been given the authority to exclude from participation in Medicare, Medicaid and other federal health care programs individuals and entities who have engaged in fraud or abuse, and to impose civil money penalties (CMPs) for certain misconduct related to federal health care programs as outlined in sections 1128 and 1128A of the Social Security Act.
 
TruDiligence utilizes GSA / OIG resources to check your applicants to ensure they have not been excluded and are eligible for employment within your facility.

FEDERAL LEVEL CRIMINAL SEARCHES
When conducting a pre-screen background investigation, a criminal history is of utmost importance.  These searches typically are placed in two main categories: arrest records and conviction records.  The use of each category has its strengths and weaknesses, so it is important for you to evaluate what you are trying to achieve to determine which is best for your application.
 
Federal-level searches involve cases in which a person was tried by the United States government in a U.S. District Court.  These searches are conducted using a public access system and are researched court by court.  The information returned will consist of the defendant's name, case number, case type and any available case details.  One disadvantage to the federal access system is that the defendant's identifiers usually are limited to name only.  Therefore, if a match is found, additional research may be required at the court level to confirm a positive identification.  If this is necessary, additional research costs may be incurred.  TruDiligence will contact you and gain approval before taking action that requires any additional research costs. All criminal searches are per name / per jurisdiction searched.

OFAC acts under presidential wartime and national emergency powers, as well as authority granted by specific legislation, to impose controls on transactions and freeze foreign assets under U.S. jurisdiction. Many of the sanctions are based on United Nations and other international mandates, are multilateral in scope, and involve close cooperation with allied governments.

LANDLORD INTERVIEW
When supplied with the name and means of contact, TruDiligence will conduct a thorough interview with the applicant's current and/or former landlord references.  This service is invaluable when screening prospective tenants for rental property.  A summary of the landlord's experience with the applicant will be provided in a question-and-answer interview format.

NATIONAL CRIMINAL / SOR / OFAC
This search is a combination of several popular database searches, packaged together at a discount.  It includes:

National Criminal Database
National Sex Offender Database
OFAC / Homeland Security Database

See the individual product descriptions for details.
NATIONAL CRIMINAL DATABASE
The National Criminal Database is a "third party" database which comprises records obtained from the state Department of Corrections and the Administrative Office of the Courts, where available. Coverage areas and update schedules vary by jurisdiction. Coverage details are available at http://www.trudiligence.com/docs/nationalcriminalcoverage.pdf.

National database systems are dependent upon getting their data from the individual state and county jurisdictions. If an individual state or county does not update its data to the national system on a regular basis, or at all for that matter, the system may have holes in its coverage area. Therefore, national database records should be used only as a tool to uncover areas requiring additional research.

TruDiligence does not recommend the use of national database records as a standalone search nor a means of promoting due diligence in screening practices or maintaining compliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act. County-level courthouse records are recommended for this purpose.

*IMPORTANT NOTE: Should you choose to use the National Criminal Database as a broad search tool and a record is found, the search results automatically will be validated with a direct search of the source county courthouse records. This validation is required by the Fair Credit Reporting Act Sections 607 and 613 to ensure accuracy of the result provided by the "third party" database. Any additional cost associated with this process will be billed at published rates which currently are $8.00 and up for county-level court record verification.

A "no record" result will turn around instantly however, when this verification on "yes record hits" is required the results of the completed search will be delayed by 24 - 72 hours while the verification search completes.


 Pricing is on a per-name-searched basis.
NATIONAL EVICTION REGISTRY SEARCH
Fewer evictions mean a better bottom line.  With the right information, evictions are preventable, because they are predictable. Analysis shows that past rental experience is a critical predictor of future rental behavior. Only National RegistryCHECK gives you exclusive online access to substantial landlord-tenant records, providing critical information not available from credit reports alone.
NATIONAL WARRANT SEARCH
This is a nationwide search for outstanding warrants on a subject.  The warrant must be active and the jurisdiction must be willing to extradite the subject on the charges in order for the warrant to show on this search.  In most cases, this search will return the date the warrant was issued and by which jurisdiction.  The charge or crime for which the warrant was issued typically will not be provided.  A subsequent search of criminal records may be necessary to gain this information.  This search is priced on a per name basis.
REFERENCE INTERVIEW
When supplied with the name and means of contact, TruDiligence will conduct a thorough interview with the applicant's professional or personal reference(s).  A summary of the references' experience with the applicant will be provided in a question-and-answer interview format.  This tool is useful when a simple employment verification will not supply the detail desired.
SEX OFFENDER REGISTRY
Most jurisdictions require any individual convicted of a sexually related crime to register with the county he/she resides in.  TruDiligence can assist in searching an applicant against these databases to ensure the individual is not a convicted sex offender.

Searches are availabe on a state-by-state basis or through a national index and are priced on a per name searched basis.
STATE LEVEL CRIMINAL RECORDS
When you are conducting a prescreen background investigation, it is of utmost importance to obtain a criminal history. These searches typically fall in two main categories: arrest records and court records. The use of each category has its strengths, weaknesses and compliance requirements, so it's important for you to evaluate what you are trying to achieve to determine which is best for your application. The list of available states is noted below. These are a combination of arrest records and court records depending on the state source. A detailed description of each state and what the statewide search encompasses is available upon request. These statewide records typically contain felony charges and most misdemeanors. Municipal- or city-level courts may or may not be included, and this municipal coverage will vary by jurisdiction.
 
Searches are priced on a per-name basis and the total product cost is the cost plus any additional state fee as noted below.
 
Time Saving Tip:  Our system provides time saving functionality which can automatically assign this search type based on known address hisotry for a specified period.
WORKERS' COMPENSATION CLAIMS
Once a conditional job offer has been made to the applicant, TruDiligence can provide history on previous workers' compensation claims.   Information returned varies from state to state but typically includes:
 
File Number
Date of injury
Body part affected
Employer at time of injury
 
Some states do not allow access to workers' compensation files.  Some require special and sometimes notarized releases. Where available, you can download the release form from the TruDiligence download forms page.  Otherwise, contact us and we will be happy to provide one.
 
Records are not available in all states.  Those with availability are listed.
 
Important Note: This information is highly regulated by the Americans with Disabilities Act and cannot be used as a basis for determining employability. It is most commonly used within the manufacturing space to help gauge suitability for the position sought after a conditional job offer has been made.
