To provide a Verifier with access to information provided in a BASIC PLUS LEVEL verification:

You will first need to generate an Authorization Code/Salary Key. You must generate an Authorization Code for each verification and may have 3 Authorization Codes concurrently in use. If unused, they will expire after 6 months. To generate an Authorization Code, you will need the following information:

  1. State of California Company Code: 10396

Your ID Number (Last 6 digits of SSN, followed by 2 digit month and 2 digit day of your birth)  Your ID Number is the last six (6) digits of your Social Security Number + the 2 digit month and 2 digit day of your birth.  Example: if your Social Security Number is 123-45-6789 and you were born July 04, 1976, your ID Number would be 4567890704
