Verified Veteran Commonly Asked Questions

How do you verify my Veteran status?

We verify your Veteran status by accessing records in a number of databases which may include the United States Department of Defense. When we are unable to access a record or verify through database confirmation we manually review official government documents and when appropriate, independently confirm their accuracy with the issuing government agency.

 

What kinds of documentation can I submit?

We accept a wide variety of government issued documents. The types of documents we accept varies by verification type. We will show you the list of accepted documentation during the online verification process.

 

I don't want to verify online. What other verification options do you offer?

Currently, we only offer this service online. If you have extenuating circumstances, please contact us at 800-683-5163.

 

How do I know you won't sell or share my personal information?

This is something we take extremely seriously. We do not directly store nor do we sell or otherwise share your Personal Identifiable Information (PII) with third parties.

 

I have questions that aren't covered here. Can you help me?

Yes. You can contact us at 800-683-5163 and one of our Credibility Specialists will be happy to assist you.

 

What happens if I can't prove I'm a Veteran?

This rarely happens. All military service men and women are provided official documentation upon discharge that we are able to accept. If you have extenuating circumstances, please contact us at 800-683-5163.

 

Once my veteran status is verified, am I eligible for services offered by the SBA, VA and others?

No. Our Veteran Verification does not automatically qualify you for other third party services at this time. Please refer to the terms and conditions established by each third party for information regarding their eligibility criteria.

 

Why do I have to submit my business ownership documentation?

Our Verified products were developed to help businesses showcase their Verified ownership information. For example, SBA requires that a business be owned (51% or more) by a Veteran to qualify for its Veteran owned business status. We mirror these requirements in an effort to help foster marketplace ubiquity and transparency and to help make it easier for agencies to establish that our verification standards meet or exceed their established criteria.

 

What kind of documentation I can submit?

We accept a wide variety of government issued documents. The types of documents we accept varies by verification type:

  • C Corporation should upload Schedule G-Form 1120
  • S Corporation should upload Schedule K1-Form 1120S
  • Sole Proprietors should upload Schedule C or C-EZ page 1
  • LLCs & Partnerships should upload either Schedule B1-Form 1065 or Schedule K1-Form 1065

 

How will you verify my ownership documentation?

We verify this information by utilizing best practices to help combat fraud and independently confirming accuracy against other sources.

 

Will you sell my information?

We only use your information to confirm your eligibility. We do not directly store nor do we sell or otherwise share your Personal Identifiable Information (PII) with third parties.

 

What happens if I don’t submit my business ownership documentation?

Your verification status will remain in the “pending” status until all required documentation has been received, reviewed and approved.

 

Why do I have to sign Declaration of Authenticity?

We require this to help prevent fraud, improve accuracy and maintain integrity. Additionally, some third party organizations require similar documentation so this may help you complete their processes to the extent they accept our verification.

 

What happens if I don’t sign this?

Your verification status will remain in the “pending” status until all required documentation has been received, reviewed and approved.
