1. Social Security Number search
The U.S. Government Department of Defense Manpower Data Center only guarantees the accuracy of its response to inquirers who can provide a social security number. Without this, it is difficult for this large government agency to ensure that they have the correct record, which can potentially result in a false positive or negative.
If the social security number is unknown, the DMDC may accept a date of birth, but the military status report that the DMDC will issue will include a broad disclaimer explaining that the record cannot be guaranteed. Courts frequently dislike this disclaimer, because it offers no assurance that the verification is accurate, leaving the plaintiff to explain the situation.
