Background Check



Dear Registrant

Startown Optimist Club welcomes you to background screening with National Center for Safety Initiatives (NCSI). Please follow the directions below to start the process.

Simply go to and click on “Start Your Background Screening Now.” Complete three easy steps:

Step 1: Enter Self Registration Number: 33116817

Step 2: Enter Your Information as Requested

Step 3: Provide Legal Authorization and Certification

It is important when entering your name, that you use your full legal name as written on your current ID ( current  state driver’s license, passport with name and DOB state ID with name). Please also verify that your social security number was typed correctly. Using nicknames or failing to type a correct social security number may delay or invalidate your background check.

NCSI will contact you directly if there are any questions, problems or issues related to your specific information. An email address is required when completing the background check as our contact with you will largely be electronic. Please be sure to add to your list of acceptable domains in your email program to receive notifications from us.

If you have any questions or problems submitting your information, please email or call the NCSI at (440) 542-9833 or toll free (866) 833-7100.

Once you have submitted your information you will receive a confirmation page with a 16- digit Applicant ID Number. The background check generally takes 10 business days to complete and you may check your status on our website under the "Check Your Background Screening Status" link at

Thank you for your cooperation in this important process.
