VIN and Tag Numbers – Do They Help Verify Military Duty?

When someone is searching to verify military duty and doesn’t know the Social Security Number of an individual, the SCRACVS can sometimes find the SSN by using the Subject’s address. Sometimes, towing companies, repossession services, insurance companies, and law firms only have a VIN or tag number.

SCRACVS has found that VIN and tag numbers are not always helpful in finding addresses.

Roughly half of the States share information, but the others do not. If the VIN was registered in a State that does not share its information, a search on the national data bases will come up empty. Law enforcement has access to a more comprehensive data base that may contain VIN and tag numbers and other information not available to others.
