Experts Say...

Arizona lawyer, John Phebus, explains background checks in Arizona. "In Arizona, background checks can serve to confirm Social Security numbers, confirm home addresses, check driving records, obtain a credit score report, and provide an overview of criminal history," he says. "An Arizona background check can surface criminal record information from different states, not just in Arizona. Crimes you committed in a different state, therefore, could appear on your Arizona background check."

Phebus explains that the information requested depends on the employer's or investigator's request. Background checks for caretaker roles, for example, might include criminal history and social security. However, landlords might request credit and employment checks on their tenants.
