The SSN trace report is derived from credit bureau records and follows a standard format. The sources include applications for cell phones, utilities (telephone, electric), credit checks for loans and/or credit cards, and qualification for rental agreements. SSN VALIDATION provides the date and state where the SSN was issued. Below please find an example.

Abbreviations are often associated with the results. They are:
CA = current address
FA = former address
FN = former name Occasionally, the SSN Trace will report names or addresses unknown to the job applicant. These generally are simply records errors caused by faulty data entry. However, they may signify identity theft (even though this is rare). We encourage the applicant to request their free annual credit report from each of the three major credit bureaus in this situation.
Occasionally the SSN provided for the background report is simply incorrect. This could be transcription, a typographical error, or simply the candidate who does not have a valid SSN. If a different number needs to be searched other than that originally provided, additional fees will be incurred.
