The ideal solution for conducting ad-hoc existence checks for large volumes of scheme members, our Existence Batch service can screen your entire scheme database to identify mortalities* and gone aways, as well as append any missing details to improve data quality. This screening process is also employed before enrolling on Existence Alert.
Existence check results
All records screened by Existence Batch, will be returned with one of the following statuses:
- Verified – the member is identified as residing at the provided address and missing information has been populated where possible.
- Unverified – the member’s residency could not be verified and no mortality match was found. Further investigation is needed; it might transpire that the member is still at the given address.
- Gone Away – the member is not at the given address and should be traced.
- Deceased – the member is matched to a mortality in our database; manual investigation will score the match and output a certainty code relating to the subject.
*Death Registration Information (DRI)
Tracesmart is one of a small number of companies licensed to receive DRI data from the Identity and Passport Service. The feed gives notice of all deaths registered within the UK on a weekly basis, permitting data screening against the most up-to-date mortality information available. Supplemented with our existing mortality datasets that includes historic death data spanning back to 1976 for England and Wales and to 1974 for Scotland, our existence service delivers authoritative screening to combat fraud.
