Can a background check be completed without an SSN?

Although an SSN is not required to conduct most criminal searches, an incomplete or inaccurate SSN can "weaken" the overall search capabilities, so it is highly recommended. We use the SSN to verify any possible records that come back on the report under the applicant's full name and date of birth. If an SSN is not provided, we will not be able to verify the records and most likely will reach out to you for the SSN anyway.
