ELECTRONIC VERIFICATION OF VITAL EVENTS (EVVE)

EVVE verifies identity quickly and powerfully by matching against United States jurisdiction birth certificate databases. EVVE is the sole source for this information. No other private or federal database contains this data. In cases where a birth certificate is in hand, EVVE allows for immediate confirmation of the document’s legitimacy. Data availability is dependent on the nature of your agency due to varying jurisdictional laws. U.S. government agencies are generally authorized to access most, if not all EVVE data. Private agencies will have less access due to these laws.

Authorized EVVE users send an electronic query to any participating vital records jurisdiction. The purpose of this query can either verify the contents of a paper birth certificate in hand, or request an electronic certification in lieu  of the paper birth certificate. An electronic response from the participating vital records jurisdiction either verifies or denies the match with the official vital records. The EVVE system will also flag matching responses in which the individual  is deceased, an important step that prevents fraud.

EVVE is the one-stop destination for validating vital birth and death records. No other system provides access to a more complete set of vital records than EVVE.

EVVE FACT OF DEATH (FOD)

EVVE FOD is an innovative death matching system that matches against the most accurate death data in the nation: the death record databases of vital records offices. Using this system, users can send records to jurisdictions across the nation and receive matches in seconds, finding out who among the records submitted is deceased, and when and where they died. Ever since the Death Master File removed state protected records from its database, there has been strong demand for a new system that contains accurate death information. EVVE FOD is the answer. Currently, 44 states and jurisdictions are fully participating in the EVVE FOD system and many more are near full participation as well.

WHY EVVE FOD IS IMPORTANT

Currently, the primary public source of death information in the country is the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) Death Master File (DMF). The public DMF originally contained over 89 million records and was created from death records that had been reported to the SSA. In November of 2011, SSA was no longer allowed to include state protected death records in the public DMF. As a result, the number of death records reported in the DMF was significantly reduced by approximately 4.2 million records, and SSA adds about 1 million fewer records annually, rendering the current public DMF incomplete and inaccurate. Jurisdiction vital records offices, on the other hand, do have current, accurate, and complete records of deaths that occur in their jurisdiction and are therefore; the only source for complete and accurate death information.

Due to EVVE Fact of Death's unrivaled access to secure, comprehensive, and rapidly accessible vital records, our customers experience the following benefits of EVVE FOD:

  • Real Time Access to Data

  • Deter Identity Theft and Fraud

  • Improve Customer Service

  • Save Time & Cost
