Helpers Background Checks

All AyiConnect helpers must complete verification before their profiles are approved. 

All of our Elite helpers must pass background checks. The helpers with background checks completed will display the badge “background checked”.

We use a third-party service to perform our background checks and pay all associated fees. When the background check is performed, the helper will go through identification verification, addresses on file, a statement on criminal records, and a sex offender search. It also searches numerous terrorist, criminal, and regulatory watch lists for the potential provider's name. The check also searches on a multi-jurisdictional database of criminal records that certain localities across the country choose to provide.

Please note that these checkers may be about federal, state, and local law and that the availability of criminal record information varies. Background checks may not be 100% accurate and may not reveal the entirety of a potential provider's criminal or sex offender history. See below the background search area of coverage:

  • SSN Trace and Address History: Are your candidates who they claim to be? Identity verification lets you discover possible identity theft or impersonation. This check will validate an SSN, the first step in this process is the SSN Trace, which seeks to match the SSN provided by the applicant with the records from the Social Security Administration, compare the results with public record databases, look for matches against the name, date of birth, and address history, and cross-check against the SSN Death Master File (to confirm the candidate is not using a deceased SSN).

  • National Criminal Records: A National Criminal Search is a high-speed multi-jurisdictional search across several proprietary databases compiled from multiple sources consisting of court records, incarceration records, prison/inmate records, probation/parole/release information, arrest data, wants and warrants and/or other proprietary sources. It helps identify jurisdictions on a broader scale where a person may have a criminal record. This check is strongly advised alongside a Contingent County Search for a more thorough investigation of criminal charges on a specific candidate.

  • Sex Offender Registry: A Sex Offender Search provides a 50-state, real-time sex offender registry scan to confirm a candidate has never committed any sexual offense.

  • Global Watchlist: Global Watchlist Search scans over 100 domestic and international lists to look for candidate name matches or potential affiliations to:

    • Foreign terrorist organizations
    • Global terrorists on the terrorist watch list
    • International narcotics traffickers
    • Individuals and organizations that have been placed on watch status by U.S. and international government agencies
    • OFAC
    • Interpol
    • And much more!
