How should I submit names when they are hyphenated?
TruDiligence Knowledgebase – Background Check Services
When ordering searches on applicants with hyphenated last names, the best practice is to submit each name as its own search. For example: Mary Smith-Johnson should be submitted as two searches: Mary Smith and Mary Johnson. Heeding this suggestion will ensure you receive the most accurate searches possible for hyphenated last names. If cost is the driving factor, a hyphenated last name can be submitted in its hyphenated form. The results typically are not as accurate, as not all systems link multiple last names, but this can save substantially on cost.
