In addition to occasional checks of your own Social Security Number, you should check the activity associated with it any time you may have been exposed to identity theft. You are at risk of identity theft if your social security card was stolen; document containing the number where compromised; or, you unwittingly disclosed your social security number.

There are four Basic types of Social Security Number search: Verification; Validation; Background and People Search:
A Verification Search or Social Security number trace discloses public and private records associated with the social security number. It will tell you when, where and to whom the number was issued; the full name and date of birth of the individual associated with the number; if they have been reported deceased; and, any names or alias associated with the number
ASocial Security number validation tells you if the number is valid and to whom it was issued.
A Background Search with a social security number gives a complete report on the person the number was issued to, by checking a multitude of public records.
