Identity proofing is critical to mitigating the failure to ensure the right benefits and services go to the right people. But it’s not only about “truing up” a name and a benefit at a single point in time.

This level of assurance can be achieved for tens of millions of individuals while shielding personally identifiable information from the agency’s view. That’s good news for citizens worried about privacy, and also ensures compliance with Fair Information Practice Principles and other regulations that govern data sharing and retention.
