  • Background Investigation All criminal and civil checks are conducted through on-site searches at local and county courthouses nationwide.
  • Activity/Alive & Well Check These checks consist of an on-site inquiry into the level of activity of a claimant. They can be conducted by surveillance methods or through an onsite interview. Activity checks require a minimum of 4 hours.
