Assess eligibility

It's no easy task to ensure that everyone receives the public services they're entitled to.

In 2010 alone, as many as two million families were waiting for council houses. The cost to local authorities of providing temporary housing to homeless families is reported to be nearly £1 billion a year.

We can help you to tackle figures like these, to the benefit of your organisation and individuals living within your local authority.

Why choose Equifax?

Our in-depth knowledge of individuals and their personal circumstances can help you ensure that the right service reaches the right person at the right time.

We can help you:


  • Cleanse and enhance your existing customer databases so you can base decisions on the best, most up-to-data information
  • Judge whether an individual is eligible for a service, by confirming addresses, identifying maiden names and aliases, verifying identity, and providing a complete picture of the benefits and services they're already receiving
  • Monitor an individual's personal circumstances for changes that affect their eligibility, such as changes of address, financial status or mortality
  • Identify an individual's preferred methods of interaction and communication using behavioural models based on income, life stage, lifestyle, property value and other attributes.


Access Equifax eligibility assessment services via an online, screen-based service; by sending us records via a secure link to be processed and returned; or by integrating the service directly into your own systems via a secure data exchange.

The Equifax Tenancy Verification service harnesses the power of our extensive data assets, combined with our proven data matching and analytical capabilities to help local authorities reduce this burden on their budgets."
