Social Security Number (SSN) Trace

The SSN Trace associates a given name and SSN number against databases assembled from private sector sources and serves as a location tool to establish jurisdictions to search for public records. AssureHire's SSN Trace uses a private sector databases compiled from hundreds of sources that include credit headers, U.S. Postal Service address forwarding, utility bill records, and voter registration records. The SSN Trace checks the provided Social Security number for names and addresses that have been used in conjunction with a given SSN.

National Criminal Database

National Criminal Database is comprised of millions of criminal records collected from thousands of county and state entities. This information is used to identify additional jurisdictions that the address history wouldn't necessarily locate. All possible records are validated with a primary source county or state criminal search.

Driving Records

Motor Vehicle Record checks are important for any background screen on employees who will drive a company vehicle, chauffeur or operate machinery. DMV records highlight an individuals driving history over the past three to seven years (varies by state) and are available in all 50 states and Washington D.C.

Consent Based Social Security Verification (CBSV)

Processed through the Social Security Administration and with the consent of the SSN holder, CBSV can verify if the SSN holder’s name, date of birth, and SSN match SSA’s records. It will return a match verification of “yes” or “no” or "deceased." The CBSV does not verify an individual’s identity, citizenship, employment eligibility, nor does it interface with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) verification system.

DOJ National Sex Offender Registry

The National Sex Offender Registry is a search of the US Department of Justice Sex Offender Registry. It includes real time listings of registered sex offenders in 49 states (Nevada statutes prohibit the use of information obtained through their sex offender registry in making hiring decisions).

Statewide Criminal Search

The Statewide Criminal Records search is a search of a state repository for Felony and Misdemeanor information.

Our Story.

AssureHire co-founders and distinguished software engineers, Troy Kruthoff and Rob Bagley, created the first online background service in 1997. At that time, only 25% of employeers were screening applicants and the technology of choice was the fax machine! In the following decade, they continued to innovate and invented most of the features that have now become standard features of modern screening systems, including: automated jurisdiction discovery, managed compliance, managed adjudication, report coloring and wording ("clear" or "consider") and much more.

In 2016, Rob and Troy returned to the screening industry to innovate the next generation of background screening in a mobile centric environment. Most background checks today are initiated with an email to the applicant, introducing new approaches to user experiences, identity management, data validation, compliance and customer service. AssureHire is now innovating and implementing background screening features that will become defacto-standards for decades to come.
