How to Order an SSNV

To verify a borrower's Social Security Number in the Avantus reporting system, first go to and login using your Avantus credentials.

1.  Click on the SSNV icon.

2.  Enter information for the consumer that you need to verify.

You have the option to upload the signed SSA-89 or generate a fax coversheet and fax the order in. When you choose to upload the SSA-89 you will see the screen below, which allows you to browse your computer for the signed SSA-89. Note the link on the left hand side of the page that allows you to download a blank SSA-89 with the required information pre-loaded in the Company Agent field.

3.  Click on submit to order the SSNV. Your order will show a Pending status until complete. The average time to complete an SSNV during business hours is approximately 15 minutes. You will receive an email notification when your verification is complete.

If you choose to fax your SSA-89, after clicking the Submit button you will see the Get Cover Sheet link as seen below. Clicking this link will allow you to print out the cover sheet. Fax the cover sheet and signed SSA-89 to the phone number listed on the cover sheet. You will receive an email notification when complete.

4.  Once you receive the email notification that your SSNV is complete, login to your Avantus account and open the request (or use the link in the email to login, and you will be directed to that request). The completed SSNV is now available to View or Download.
