Verify A Social Security Number: Employer Tools To Check A SSN

An Employer’s tools to verify a Social Security Number are of two types: 1) Non-Government Research Tools and 2) Official Government Employment Eligibility Verification Tools (usually used after an employee has been hired).

Check SSN, Verify Social Security Number

Non-Government Research Tools such a SSN Scan (Credit Header Check) and various SSN Validation Tools are usually used in the background check or pre-hire due diligence process.

Official Government Employment Eligibility Verification Tools such as E-Verify and Social Security Number Verification Service (SSNVS) are usually used after an employee has been hired to meet government requirements to verify that employee names and Social Security numbers match Social Security Administration (SSA) records.

For more information about verifying Social Security Numbers before and after a hire see How to Verify a Social Security Number.
