How is project management experience verified for the pmp?

Is the project management experience ever verified for the pmp? How and who verifies it?

The company I used to work for no longer exists, how can they check that my project management experience is really valid? Will they call my ex-CEO? I'm sure that I'm not alone in this situation, so there must be someone out there who knows how this works.

Note that PMI has a limit to how far back you can claim your project management experience. According to the PMP Handbook, page 8, you can only claim project management experience from within the past 8 years (so you cannot claim any project management experience that you did back in 2000, for example).

Unless you are flagged for audit, the project management experience is verified just by checking that you have the right number of hours (either 4,500 or 7,500 hours) of project management experience. Just make the sure that the calculation adds up, and unless you're very unlucky, you will be audited.

I think they only verify randomly (just like the audit process). Make sure that you provide a "logical" experience (meaning no overlapping months, etc...), and you should be OK. Worst case scenario you will be contacted by PMI to provide further support for your application.

Just for the records, I don't think they call individuals to verify someone's experience. A lot of companies have vanished in the past couple of years so you're not the only one, and trust me, they'll understand.
