The SSVerify tool can help agencies verify the identities of clients to ensure funds are being used appropriately. When clients request assistance, caseworkers can use SSVerify to save a securely hashed copy of the client’s social security number. Then, caseworkers can verify that clients are using the same social security each time they return for assistance.
SSVerify is safe and secure – Administry never stores social security numbers, and there is absolutely no way to extract a social security number from SSVerify. Instead, this tool compares randomly and irreversibly hashed translations of social security numbers to ensure your clients’ personal information is completely safe.
For privacy reasons, SSVerify does not search or communicate with any external services or databases to verify social security numbers. SSVerify can only confirm that a client is using the same social security number.
