Social Security Administration

Use current income information to ensure you’re making accurate social security disability determinations and reviews.   With Equifax Verification Services, you’ll deliver better decisions for the individual while enhancing program integrity.

With a volatile economy and rapidly changing employment, it's essential to rely on the most-current and authentic information for Social Security Administration (SSA) program determinations. More than ever before, agencies across the board are finding increased applicant fraud as a result of unreported, or underreported, income. Equifax Verification Services provides a current view of the applicant's salary detail, direct from the most recent employer payroll, for use with SSA eligibility determination for Retirement, Disability and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) programs.

Equifax is the largest provider of employer-direct income information – maintaining millions of current employment records from thousands of employers nationwide. Our service rapidly verifies payroll income to help streamline eligibility and audit functions for both fraud and compliance.

The Social Security Administration leverages current income and employment information from Equifax in tandem with other public sector data for a complete picture of an applicant's financial situation. The SSA finds value in Equifax data for on-the-spot medical and disability reviews to determine if a beneficiary remains eligible, as well as for SSI re-determinations to re-evaluate any nonmedical factors that might affect continued eligibility or payment amounts.
