Credit Bureau Inquiries

Reduce risk with informed hiring decisions.

For certain roles, you need a more holistic view of a candidate or company. Credit check and financial health reports are invaluable to filling in the gaps. Often mandated for candidates with managerial, accounting, financial record, or check-writing responsibilities, our reports reveal unbiased insights into candidate’s financial trustworthiness.

Reveal Payment History and More

A credit inquiry is a search based on the applicant’s credit history, which may reveal inconsistent payment histories, bankruptcies, legal action, and collections. In addition, a credit inquiry includes all the benefits of our Identity-Cross-Check. The credit inquiry does not affect your candidate’s credit score.

With the added value of Identity-Cross-Check, this service has proven itself useful for clients time and time again, as it catches candidates attempting to manipulate the system by providing a fake name or date of birth. When our credit bureau inquiries are ordered in conjunction with a criminal record check, Sterling Backcheck is able to uncover additional candidate aliases, increasing the number of candidate criminal records discovered by over 30%.
