Other Services

  • SSN Validation: Certn queries the SSN provided by the applicant against information provided by the Social Security Administration (SSA) to determine whether the SSN is a valid SSN, or whether the SSN is associated with a number on the SSA’s Death Master File. If the number is invalid or listed on the Death Master File, the Certn system prompts the applicant to provide additional documentation.
  • Address History Trace: The SSN Trace includes a compilation of addresses associated with the SSN. Based on this information and your package scope, Certn will use address history to determine which jurisdictions to search for court records.
