Employment and Salary Verification

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.

Use The Work Number® for immediate, accurate, and secure automated employment and income verification. It is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, at no cost to UVA employees.

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

Agencies may also fax their employment verification request to 855.451.3870.

Other agencies: Visit “I’m an Employer” on the Work Number website or call 800.660.3399
