Credit Reports Don’t Necessarily Verify Renters’ Identities
One fact that many don’t understand is that the tenant background report does not definitively say whether a Social Security Number belongs to an individual, confirming his/her identity. What the report can confirm with the Social Security Administration is whether (a) that SSN was either issued (b) does the issuance correlate to your applicant’s birth year and (c) has the SSN expired/associated with a deceased person.
