Order a Nanny Background Check
Our unique dual-national criminal search provides data on both individuals with and without social security numbers. Since there is no single database in the United States that receives 100% of the national criminal data, our approach casts a wider net to encompass more criminal reporting agencies. With over 10 years of running nanny background checks using this strategy, we have proved that our approach has identified more criminal records than would otherwise have been found.
Once you place your online order, your nanny candidate will automatically receive an email with a secure link that opens to an easy to complete online form. All data needed to begin this search will be received once your candidate submits this form. If your candidate does not have an email address, we will email you hard copy forms for the nanny to complete. Upon completion, you can email or fax the forms back to us to begin the process.
Dual National Criminal Search
This multi-faceted product combines a search through the industry’s top two criminal conviction databases including criminal records for candidates with and without a social security number. The data is compiled from State and County Court Repositories, Law Enforcement, Department of Corrections, State Government Agencies and Administrator of the Courts resulting in a powerful multi-jurisdictional criminal search that encompasses millions of criminal records.
Married/Maiden Name Search with Spelling Variations
This search runs separate criminal checks on each name that your candidate has used, including spelling variations. The names searched include primary name and other names found in the name and address history for your candidate, such as maiden name, previously married names, middle names used as first names, nicknames and other aliases. (Other firms would charge a full additional search fee for each name.)
County Criminal Check
This search is conducted at the actual courthouse by a professional court researcher or through a direct data connection into that courthouse’s database.
The search includes criminal records going back 7 years for a single county. The search will be conducted in the county in which your candidate resides
or in the county where the Social Security Address Trace indicates he/she has lived the longest as an adult.
Note: Certain areas of the state of New York do not allow for a single county search. Since these counties do not submit their criminal data to the national databases, we recommend that you order the New York State Check-Please contact us for pricing.
Social Security Trace/Address History
With a full name including first, middle and last name, and the social security number (SSN), we report the state and approximate date of issuance of the
SSN for Social Security Numbers issued prior to the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) randomization initiative started in June 25, 2011. We then
run the SSN through the SSA Death Master Index and alert you if the SSN belongs to a deceased person. This allows you to better identify and prevent
identity fraud. The address trace is obtained through the credit reporting agencies with an address collected each time a candidate has applied for
credit. This address history can point out inconsistencies in your candidate’s employment and residential history.
Sex Offender Registry
A Sexual Offender Search should be mandatory for any background check. Our team conducts a national search of individual state sexual offender registries.
In addition, we also conduct an up to date researcher re-check of the sexual offender database of the state of residence as well as all neighboring
states. In most cases if a match occurs, we will provide you a photo of the match to verify identification.
State Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) Report
This is an essential part of any nanny candidate background check especially if the nanny will be driving the children. State DMV reports show an individual’s
driving history and can indicate reckless, unsafe or irresponsible behavior. DMV reports can be a strong indicator of substance abuse or alcohol problems.
You will receive your candidate’s full driving record that lists all her reportable traffic violations and the points he/she was charged for each infraction.
College Education Verification
Unlike other background check firms that only verify a degree; we will verify a college degree as well as current college attendance. Reporting a college
degree is the most commonly misrepresented information submitted by job candidates. We have access to student databases of over 1,200 educational institutions.
Our investigators will either access the university’s database files or directly contact the College Registrar. We verify highest degree achieved,
date graduated and major field of study.
