SSN Search

SSN Search

SSN Search or more fully, social security number search uses a person’s SSN to perform a social security record search. This is very powerful. The reason it’s so powerful is that a social security number is used in many different ‘official’ situations. To claim social security benefits, for example, you obviously need your social security number. However, it does not end there.

Here are some examples of where a social security number is used to identify a person:

  • Employment
  • Job application screening
  • Criminal records
  • Background checks online
  • Social Security Administration SSA
  • A person’s driving record

And of course many other situations. So if you have a social security number, this is a very powerful way of running a search / background check. You can verify a social security number here.
