Identity Services

Are they really who they say they are?

- Identity Records -

Are you sure your candidate is really who he says he is? Identity theft in the U.S. is on the rise, and some individuals are using new identities to land a job by evading background checks.

Identity services are a crucial component of any background check. Identity services are used in conjunction with personal information, public record, social security checks, as well as address history. Our identity records can include an e-signature or rather wet signature for all online document signature offering employers peace of mind.

What Do Identity Services Offer Employers?

  • Peace of Mind
  • State and Federal Compliance
  • Qualified Candidates

E-verify: Legal Residence Verification

The Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) mandates that:

  • More than 870,000 employers are enrolled in E-verify
  • It offers speed and accuracy so employers can make the right hire
  • E-verify can only be completed on an employee once

The Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) mandates that employers authenticate the employment eligibility status of newly hired employees and makes it illegal for employers to knowingly hire or continue to employ unauthorized workers.

KRESS is a designated agent authorized by the DHS to perform I-9 employment authorization searches on behalf of clients and makes taking care of I-9 Forms easier than ever.

Social Security Number (SSN) Trace

We offer SSN background checks, as an identifier for any alias names going back seven years associated with the social security number.

  • Can be completed at any time
  • Does not verify identity
  • Trace includes dates, addresses, alternative names used

The Social Security Number Trace acts as an identifier and reveals any alias names, as well as past and present addresses associated with the social security number. It’s a crucial component of criminal history research as it is used as a roadmap to select court jurisdictions that should be researched for criminal records.

When a SSN background check isn’t enough

Occasionally, a SSN background check will come back with no results. This doesn’t automatically indicate that your applicant is in the country illegally. For young candidates, this simply means they have not applied for credit in the past, which is why SSN background checks are conducted.

KRESS offers address history searches and other verification services to ensure you’re choosing the best candidates quickly and easily.


KRESS can provide you with current address information and address history, as well as death index information from the Social Security Administration, through a standard SSN background check. As a standalone service, this information proves especially helpful when employers are required to maintain communication with retired or former employees for various benefits, tax, and financial reporting.


E-Authorize is the enterprise employment screening tool that combines Invite the Applicant and Electronic Wet Signature (EWS) so employers can spend less time ordering background checks and more time making the right hire. Our electronic wet signature technology allows applicants to provide a legally compliant signature using a computer mouse. This process ensures total compliance because the signature is always acquired before the background check is performed.
