Employment and Salary Verification
You may need to verify your employment or salary if you are buying a home, renting an apartment, establishing credit, applying for a loan, purchasing a car, traveling (if you have immigrant status), etc.
University of Virginia has partnered with The Work Number, an Income and Employment Verification service. Please review the attached link for additional information or contact The Work Number for your verification needs. Their services are available 24/7 for your verification needs. The Work Number database is a simple, secure, and discreet way to help get proof of your employment and income information to companies when needed.
Companies requesting employment verification are charged a fee for the service. If the verification cost is then billed to the employee, The Work Number may refund the transaction cost to the employee. Considerations for reimbursement include the following:
- Reimbursement is limited to transactions that are explicitly indicated on an invoice as a Work Number transaction
- More general transactions indicating administrative or processing fees are not eligible for reimbursement
- The employee must provide proof of the charge to Talent Support (i.e., letter or invoice from the company and payment of the fee, receipt, copy of check)
Public Service agencies: Visit “Social Services” on The Work Number website or call 800.660.3399
The Work Number requires verifiers to provide an Employer Code. This code identifies our organization with The Work Number. Below are all associated Employer Code for the University of Virginia, Medical Center and the University Physicians Group.
- Academic 14053
- Medical Center 14563
- University Physicians Group 19623
Please note that If the employee you are trying to verify employment for has had an Internal transfer within the last three years you will need to pull another report for that employer code.
