SSA offers three service options for participating companies to connect to the CBSV system. Each of these three ways is described further in the CBSV User Guide .

Web Service

The CBSV Web Service is designed to support interoperable machine-to-machine interaction over the Internet for an instantaneous response. With the Web Service, companies create their own interface for CBSV. If you are a developer who works for a company that plans to access CBSV through a Web Service, read our Web Service Users documents.

Internet

CBSV allows you to request online verification of up to 10 names and SSNs at a time and receive instantaneous results. There is no limit to the number of times the CBSV Verification web page may be used within a session or within a day. The CBSV Online service requires you to have Internet access and a Web browser. Your browser version must allow cookies (files store temporarily on your computer) and have 128-bit encryption.

Batch File Process

CBSV allows you to request Name and SSN verifications through overnight batch (electronic file) submissions. The batch file process requires you to have Internet access and a Web browser. Your browser version must allow cookies (files store temporarily on your computer) and have 128-bit encryption.
