What if a candidate does not have a Social Security Number?
There are screenings that do not require a candidate to have an SSN, such as Motor Vehicle Records and Education Verifications. However, if your candidate is a U.S.-based individual and they do not have a valid SSN, Checkr is unable to complete a criminal background check. Additionally, Checkr cannot accept an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN).
This response is specific to domestic (US) background screenings. For more information about international screening requirements, visit the International Screenings section of the Checkr Help Center.
