What’s included in your package?

Choose the screenings that fit your workflow. We offer FCRA compliant core services and optional add-ons that are essential for small- and mid-size business background checks.

  • SSN Trace + Address History

    We use a database pulled from thousands of sources to provide summaries of the applicant’s name, name variations and previous addresses for further investigation.
  • 7-Year Criminal History

    The 7-Year Criminal History searches criminal records in county courts based on the results returned from the SSN Trace. Accurate researches felony and misdemeanor cases that return results of offenses, charges, file numbers, file dates, disposition and sentences. We can conduct searches in any county in the United States.
  • National Criminal Check with County Verification

    National Criminal Search is a proprietary database compiled from U.S. court records. Data is sourced from county courts and statewide criminal databases as well as from sex offender and correctional databases. To comply with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) for pre-employment purposes, all background check results must be retrieved from the original source. Therefore, if a criminal record is uncovered through the National Criminal search, Accurate performs a follow-up search at the local level. This additional search is included in your package setup.
  • National Sex Offender Registry

    The National Sex Offender Registry search examines the most recent, updated list of registered sex offenders.
  • Global Watch

    Global Watch helps your company comply with the USA Patriot Act, Bank Secrecy Act, Politically Exposed Persons (PEP) Screening, Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) and many other terrorist and fraud searches by gathering current data from top U.S. and global official sanction and embargo lists.
  • Current County Criminal Search

    Search the current county corresponding to the address provided by the applicant.
  • $5.00 optional add-on

    Pre-Adverse and Adverse Action Letter Distribution

    Initiate Pre-Adverse and Adverse Action notices with a click of a button. Automatically send notices directly to the candidate’s email address. Your cost includes both Pre-Adverse and Adverse Action notices.
  • $9.95 optional add-on

    Education Verification

    Education Verification confirms the credential earned by an academic institution. This service includes the highest education level completed and may incur third-party verification fees.
  • $9.95 optional add-on

    Employment Verification

    We contact the past or current employer to verify information provided on an application. The verification includes one employer located in the United States. This service may incur third-party verification fees.
  • $9.95 optional add-on

    Professional License Verification

    The Professional License Verification contacts the license issuing authority to verify that licenses are current and in good standing.

    Motor Vehicle Report

    The Motor Vehicle Report queries the applicant’s state Department of Motor Vehicle records and provides a three- to five-year driving history. Out-of-state driving-related charges and vehicle-related crimes are frequently included on the report.
  • $9.95 optional add-on

    Federal Criminal Search

    Offenses that are violations of Federal law, as opposed to state or local law, can only be found through a search of U.S. District Courts. Federal violations generally do not appear in either a county or statewide criminal check. Note that Federal offenses can be severe and can include kidnapping, drug trafficking, interstate transportation of stolen goods, bank robbery and embezzlement.
