SSN SEARCH & PEOPLE SEARCH
ABOUT USA TRACE
USA Trace has been in business for over 20 years. The company originated as a private investigation business. We have since evolved to become a central data-point for providing, fast, up-to-the-minute Social Security Number (SSN) Trace services. We also provide people trace services and background checks. In order to produce these results, we analyse billions of data-points. This means we can provide a free, fast SSN lockup service. We then provide extra content available for a very small fee.
SSN (Social Security Number) Search uses a person’s SSN to search their background. Searches can include marriage records, criminal records, divorce records and tax records. This is an extremely useful way for anyone to perform a background check on someone. Finding a person by name or by Social Security Number has never been easier, and in fact, there are many websites that make it possible to do a free social security check when trying to trace a person. We think that USATrace.com provides the easiest and most convenient way to perform a lookup by name or other criteria when trying to find someone in the USA.
The history of the social security system is actually quite an interesting one, and you can read much more about that here.

A social security number search has traditionally been viewed as superior to other types of background searches because every US citizen has one and virtually every legal transaction performed by a US citizen is linked with their social security number in some way.
In the past, SSN searches have only been available to select, authorized groups (such as those mentioned above) and only for specific purposes. Some of these SSN searches even required the permission of the person being searched.
Fortunately, even if you’re not a legal professional or private investigator, you can run a thorough SSN search anonymously and cheaply (if not for free). And – if you don’t know a person’s social security number – you can still have success with even the bare minimum of information about the person you’re searching for.
The secret starts with the social security number itself. The first three number of an SSN – also known as the area numbers – are associated with the state that issued the social security number. According to the Pew Research Center, 57% of US citizens are living in the same state they were born in, so that information definitely gives you a good place to start your search. By using the USA Trace SSN Chart, you can identify the state and use local white pages (often available online), social media/social networking (such as Facebook and LinkedIn) or just plain Googling to try to find the information you need – all of which are free options.
You can also try a free social security number search below to get additional information that may give you a springboard for the free search options mentioned above:
If you don’t have a social security number, try the Background Check option and get almost identical results using just a name and last known city & state (or even just the city). This option can be useful even if you do know a social security number, but aren’t getting the results you’re looking for through that search.
If the free results you see are sufficiently intriguing and/or you’re not getting the results you need from the free options that are available, you can always click through to buy a complete background check report for around $10. These include current addresses and phone numbers, marriage/divorce records, criminal records and more.
Before buying, you’ll get some additional free information about the person whose report you’ll be receiving so can be sure you’ve found the right person. If you decide to buy, you’ll get your report instantly and anonymously – your research will be done in one click and the person being researched is never notified.
