SSN / EIN Verification

What is the risk?

Identity Fraud is one of the fastest growing crimes in the nation and has resulted in an explosive need for rigorous diligence and security measures. According to the FBI, Financial Institution Fraud results in net losses that are 100 times greater than losses from all of the nation’s bank robberies combined.

Our SSN products provide swift and concrete authentication of identity and Social Security Number history through a direct link with the US government database, providing compliance and stronger security measures to facilitate higher quality loans. Where other companies only monitor usage of a Social Security Number, we can obtain Social Security Administration verification regarding the issuance of a Social Security number to an individual.

Our state of the art technology also allows full integration and automation of delivery, while fulfilling FACTA Red Flags Rule requirements. With stronger demand to stamp out fraud comes our Veri-Tax SSN solution, the definitive identity verification service for uncompromising fraud mitigation.
