Are the Social Security Number validations you perform obtained directly from the Social Security Administration? Our company has new requirements in place and we need to ensure that your verifications are an acceptable source.
To answer the question quickly, yes some of it partially derives from SSA information. However, no one can obtain information electronically from the SSA unless they are an employer and using the information solely to validate employment information on employment applications.
See a published article on this very topic here:
With that said, our SSN verification is derived using several proprietary algorithms which includes data from several proprietary databases cross-referenced and verified against information from the SSA high group and allocation information.
Feel free to test it as it is free on a limited basis.
