How Verification Works

Standard Process*

Following the establishment of Valid Telephone Number:

  • For Education Verifications and Professional License Verifications, we’ll make up to three Valid Attempts in three business days
  • For Employer Verifications, we’ll make up to five Valid Attempts in five business days
  • As needed, additional research is conducted in an effort to obtain an alternate Valid Telephone Number
  • If an alternate Valid Telephone Number is located, additional Valid Attempts will be made using alternate Valid Telephone Number
  • If an alternate Valid Telephone Number is not located, the order may be closed
* This process may change on a case-by-case basis based on the nature of order.
