The SSA currently requires an actual signature on an additional consent form for this search and does not permit an electronic signature. The CBSV cannot be part of a paperless system and requires the obtaining of a separate release from the applicant. Please note, this search does not demonstrate the right to work in the United States, which can only be confirmed through the E-Verify process.
