APSCREEN Employee Locator Services
Locate NOW! Report (You Provide SSN) $10
You get the most correct and current address available, name variations as
well as usually whether or not your applicant has died (most of the time),
telephone numbers and even email addresses.
All of our reports are hand-processed, not machine-generated which saves you the
time and trouble of dealing with locating your subjects by using inferior, cheap
or otherwise incomplete data sold cheap but with high monthly minimum fees.
Why we say we are 99% effective:
APSCREEN EmployeeLocator.com has
assembled every reliable identification repository into proprietary,
algorithmically driven and universally searchable databases which include
information from the three major credit bureaus as well as over 30 other
We don’t use a few; we use all of them. So what you get is the best possible
assemblage from every imaginable source and that makes the reports immediately
Title 29 compliant – on the first try!
We triple check and run the social security number of the employee or plan
participant and find a corrected, updated or even more current name and/or
address 99% of the time.
If the name and address we identify seems to be the same as the one you already
have, we usually discover that either an apartment number was different or
missing, the street name was incorrectly abbreviated, the direction of the
street (N, S, E, W) was omitted, the City name is incorrect, the zip code was
wrong or the person's name has changed – all reasons why the Post Office won't
deliver your mail to them. These inaccuracies are corrected in our report so 99%
of the time when the information you receive from us is put on the envelope, it
will be delivered. That process yields positive results 99% of the time as the
literally millions of locates we have provided since1988 statistically attest
If the mail is returned we have great news for you! Our Employee
Locator report is well known and recognized by both the IRS and the PBGC as a
bona-fide third-party, fully compliant Title 29, Part 4050.4 "diligent effort"
report and stands alone in providing you with the compliance you need to refer
the file. At that point you can be done with the file if you want to be, refer
it with our report and your returned mail attached to the file, and be confident
that you are fully ERISA compliant.
Ordering is easy via the internet or if you prefer, by fax.
Open Locate Report (No SSN Provided) $35
Sometimes you have an incorrect or missing SSN and/or limited identifiers, or an
anomalous or out-of-context request. When this occurs and you need to affect a
“non-SSN” or “limited-identifier” based locate, an entirely different set of
privacy statutes kicks in because this identification process is considered the
same identification development strategy that identity thieves use, so privacy
compliance is tighter, the information harder to get to and is more expensive.
Next of Kin Report $35
You must use either the Locate NOW! or OPEN LOCATE Report (above) as the basis
to conduct this search. We understand that you might have determined that the
person died on your own, but our initial search will likely yield more
information than you have, and it is upon that basis that our internal process
develops the Next of Kin information. We are successful about 90% of the time.
If you are unsuccessful with this search, we can continue on an hourly basis.
Large Groups of Missing Participants $Call$
Many times large groups of participants exist that need a different approach to
the management of their files. We have developed a file-matching service which
allows a basic Excel input format to be matched for updated addresses, telephone
numbers, and email addresses, without the hands-on/eyes-on attention that our
$10 Title 29 Complaint Locate NOW! Reports require.
The cost savings can be significant. The simple strategy here is to run large
numbers of missing participants in order to whittle down the number of missing
participants by well over 95% (on the first pass) so that you will need the
LOCATE NOW! (compliant) product on the few that don't pan out on the first pass.
The savings can be significantly less than the cost of the LOCATE NOW! product,
on a one-by-one basis when using this management strategy.
The result is the same on address/name update/correction, decedent information
and additional contact information the only difference is that the results are
delivered in an updated version of your Excel workbook file for easy downloading
into your mailing label program. These results do not qualify for Title 29
compliance, but if you can knock out the majority of the files on the first
pass, following up on the tiny percentage of missed files with the complaint
reports is a better strategy if you have a large batch of missing participants.
Now there are services out there that are offered for as low as .25 cents per
name but they are only providing one database and their success rates are
dramatically less percentage-wise than our results because we use over 30
These services also charge monthly minimum fees that range from between $25 up
to $500 per month so it’s false economy to use the services especially when
their success rates are about 60% (we know, we used to use them).
We are a boutique business assembling all available repositories and they are
selling their own file so the results are not nearly as good. We have determined
this on a random-test basis and this fact is proven daily by the scores of
clients that come to us after they learn that the .25 cent product costs them
$100 in labor and minimum fees to mess with.
Our results are fantastic and nobody comes close to our success percentages,
