Why do I need to provide my Social Security number?
Checkr’s customers often request an SSN Trace as the first screening run in any background check. This screening returns a list of your previous addresses, and any other names you may have used based on your credit and banking history. Checkr uses the information returned from the SSN Trace to initiate subsequent screenings as requested by the company ordering your background check report.
Your SSN will be truncated and encrypted in our protected databases.
