Q&A

Are there any extra fees?

KGI is required to charge sales tax on some orders.

 

Starter No Fees
Standard No Fees
Advanced

Some county criminal courts charge fees to access their records.

KGI will contact you for permission and an estimated extra cost.

If you accept the fee, we will update your order and request payment for the additional cost prior to sending your final report.

If you decline the fee, KGI will not process that county.

 

 

What information do you need to run a personal background check?

We require the following information from you to process a personal background check:

Full Legal Name Used to match records to you
Date of Birth Used to match records to you
Phone Number Used to match records to you & Communicate with you
Email Address Used to match records to you & Communicate with you
Residential Address(es) Used to match records to you
Social Security Number (SSN) Used to match records to you

 

We may contact you if we need additional information from you.

What information will I get from my personal background check?

Depending on the background check you order, your report may contain information from criminal records, sex offender registries, watch/exclusion/sanction lists, employment, and/or education verification information.

Because there are multiple laws affecting how much information we can search, KGI's personal background checks are limited to information from the last seven years.

KGI follows all applicable law and regulations, including the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

Why didn't my personal background check find a criminal record?

KGI's national databases cover a vast majority of criminal court jurisdictions within the United States.

There are some jurisdictions, however, that do not have digital court records. The only way to access these records is to have a court researcher retrieve the record from the court.

If you are concerned about a criminal record that did not come back on your personal background check report, contact us for options.

Can I share my report with an employer or property manager?

Yes, you can share your information. Employers and property managers will likely run their own background check on you as there are legal requirements for the quality and contents of the background check that they must have in order to make decisions.
