Frequently Asked Questions

Does the SSN/ITIN number appear on the tenant screening reports?

Will I be able to see the applicant's Social Security Number or International Tax ID number on the reports?

TransUnion does not provide the Social Security Number or International Tax ID number on any of the screening reports. This is to protect the applicant and the agent. The applicant does not have to worry about sensitive information being openly available to agents and landlords. At the same time, agents and landlords have less liability by not having the applicant's sensitive information at hand. All applicants go through an identity check through TransUnion. TransUnion verification has them provide either their SSN or ITIN number while also answering a series of identity verification questions.
