Are You Ready For Fingerprinting?

  1. The company that is requesting your Level 2 background check has to go on the Department of Elder Affairs Clearinghouse web Portal and generate a level 2 background check request.

    After they have registered you into the Department of Elder Affairs Clearinghouse portal they must provide you with a Live Scan Request Form that the system automatically generates with an ORI number and a Screening ID number.

  2. Use your Live Scan Request Form as a reference to register online for fingerprinting.

  3. Bring your registration confirmation email (printed or on your phone) along with your current (not expired) driver’s license, government issued identification card, or passport to the fingerprinting Kiosk location of your choosing. (You will choose your location after clicking the GET FINGERPRINTING button below.) Please call us at (866) 361-9944 if you have any questions.

  4. Your fingerprints and photo are captured by the technician at the fingerprinting Kiosk and sent to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE). The FDLE then sends the fingerprints to the FBI for processing. The results are then disseminated back to the Department of Elder Affairs Clearinghouse.

  5. You will receive an email providing you with a Transaction Control Number (TCN) that verifies your live scan submission has been processed. The TCN number can be given to the company that is requesting the background check as it will help them track results. Once the results are received from FDLE, the average processing time for clearance is approximately 3-5 business days. IMPORTANT: Please save your TCN number for reference.

The Department of Elder Affairs (DOEA) requires background screening for persons working with vulnerable senior populations, such as housekeepers, meal service, personal service and special programs.

The DOEA uses a statewide screening database called “The Clearinghouse”. The Clearinghouse allows the results of the criminal history check to be shared with different state agencies when a person enters into a contract that requires a State and national fingerprint-based criminal history check.

Types of facilities requiring Level 2 background checks under DOEA include:

  • Assisted Living Facilities (ALF) licensing and ALF specialty licenses:
    • Extended congregate care (ECC)
    • Limited nursing services (LNS)
    • Limited mental health (LMH)
  • Adult Day Care Centers
  • Adult Family Care Home
  • Nursing Homes
  • Senior Housing
  • State Veterans Nursing Home
