Frequently Asked Questions
The Work Number is the leading provider of employment and income verifications. It is used by lenders, property managers, pre-employment screeners, social service agencies and others who need to verify someone's employment status and sometimes, his or her income as well. Typically, verifications are required when a person applies for a loan or public aid, leases an apartment, updates their immigration status, or applies for a job.
When an employer decides to use The Work Number, a secure account is created for each employee. All of the features that your employer (or former employer) has decided to offer are already set up. You just need to login by entering your employer's name, or code if you know it, in addition to your User ID and PIN/Password.
The Work Number provides different "types" of verifications for different purposes. For example, if you are looking for a job, your future employer might want to check your past employment while a mortgage lender will typically need to verify your income before giving you a loan. If you apply for public aid from a social service agency, they too will need an enhanced verification. The Work Number can meet each of these needs.
