The eCBSV process is a fee-based SSN verification service that will allow permitted entities to verify an individual’s SSN based on the SSN holder’s signed, including electronic, consent in connection with a credit transaction or any circumstance described in Section 604 of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (15 USC 1681b). The respondents to the eCBSV collection are the permitted entities; members of the public who consent to the disclosure of SSN verifications; and CPAs who provide compliance review services.
