Consumer Marital Status Report
The latest addition to pbVerify’s suite of vetting and credit risk management products, the Consumer Marital Status report, allows pbVerify users to quickly and accurately verify the names and identity number of any consumer’s spouse.
This product came in response to the need for institutions to authenticate the marital status of an applicant requesting a financial service, such as credit or an account. The Consumer Marital Status report is also a very useful tool for tracing agents, who need to access spouse details of clients in default.
All the user needs to access the marital details of the applicant in question, is the 13-digit South African identity number or surname and date of birth. These details are then checked against Home Affairs data, after which the system returns the marital details, including the applicant’s spouse’s (if any) first name, surname and identity number.
Part of pbVerify’s comprehensive Business to Consumer (B2C) credit check suite, the Consumer Marital Status Report costs just R7.50 – or 75 pbVerify credits – and is available after registration to any business that grants credit to other businesses or consumers.
