Veris SSN Validation Services Answers
Frequently Asked Questions

1. How do I know which of your services would best address my company's needs?

A: This web site has an explanatory page for each of our services which can be accessed either by clicking on the headings listed on the left bar on this screen or the home page. But we'll try to give you a general idea of what these titles mean in the following paragraphs. You may click on the titles as they appear below to link directly to the page that further explains each service.

All of our services are available on-line over the Internet. If you would like to check the validity of social security numbers at your site, one-at-a-time, as one would do when opening accounts, our Interactive, One-at-a-Time Validation Service might work best for you. A number of our customers prefer the Batch Processing Service at their site for checking batches of SSN files from credit applications, personnel or benefit recipient databases, etc. to identify invalid numbers and numbers that have been retired.

Both the interactive and batch processing services are available for use on your Network or as a Software Developer's Kit for customers wishing to incorporate our software into theirs. If you have batches of SSNs to check only occasionally, it may be more cost-effective for you to send your files to our processing center. We call this service Veris by Mail. Another option that many of our clients use is to link their application directly to our server using XML queries..

All of the Veris services described thus far use information obtained from a number of sources, including the United States Social Security Administration, to determine which SSNs are likely to have been assigned, where and when they were assigned, and if the person to whom each was assigned has since been reported as deceased. They report indicators of fraud and/or error, but do not associate an SSN with a name and so do not tell you if an SSN actually belongs to the person presenting it. If you need to have the identifying information (name and address) associated with a number or batch of numbers, our SSN-ID Services would better suit your needs.

The SSN-ID for Retired SSNs Is available over the Internet or by way of software for use at your site to obtain the name and other identifying information associated with any SSN that has been "retired" (the person assigned to that number has been reported deceased). In addition to the Veris software, SSN-ID for Retired SSNs includes the retired numbers database (updated weekly) and a search engine to access the database. A mail-in option for this service is also available.

SSN-ID for Active SSNs is designed for our customers to add name and address information for SSNs that are still actively in use, answering the question, "who's number is it?" SSN-ID for Active SSNs is available in combination with other Veris services or may be purchased separately. An on-line or mail-in version of this service is available.
