The background check is included as part of your annual fee. Your background check will be immediately viewable/printable from your profile page and will not expire for one year from the day it was purchased. You will be notified when it is available for your review. After you review the background check for accuracy, you make the choice whether you wish to make it viewable by our subscribers. Unless you choose to share your results, your background check will remain private. Click here for more info: Background Checks.
