The New Telos ID IDVetting Service Makes Obtaining Your FBI Identity History Record Easier Than Ever

My high school civics teacher would often remind us: always have identification on your person, where ever you go.

Sage advice. It can save you, not to mention the authorities, a lot of frustration in so many situations — good, bad, and ugly.

Your identity is one of the most important attributes you possess.  Keeping it secure and in your control is of paramount concern, especially in this age of ever-present cyber hacks and other online threats.

Past, Present, and Future

Equally important as your identity is your identity history.

Your identity history can be a very important factor in a number life events, including finding a new job, traveling abroad, and adopting a child.

The importance of your identity history makes the biometric-based Identity History Summary Check (IdHSC), provided by the FBI, an integral requirement for millions of Americans. From the FBI’s IdHSC webpage:

For a fee, the FBI can provide individuals with an Identity History Summary—often referred to as a criminal history record or a “rap sheet”—listing certain information taken from fingerprint submissions kept by the FBI and related to arrests and, in some instances, federal employment, naturalization, or military service.

If the submitted fingerprints match with an arrest, the IdHSC includes relevant data such as the agency that conducted the arrest, date, charge, and if known, the disposition of the arrest.

Acquiring an up-to-date copy of this record, or proof that a record does not exist, is often a precondition for a number of civil, international, and legal proceedings and can be requested for the following reasons by qualifying individuals home and abroad:

However, the main problem is that this report can take up to 10-12 weeks if sent directly to the FBI for processing, including additional time for mail delivery.
