ABOUT THE WORK NUMBER
The Work Number database is a simple, secure and discreet way to get your employment and income to the companies that need it. It's available 24/7 so that you can get the decisions you need when you need them.
Your personal information is protected. With your consent your personal data can be retrieved only by credentialed verifiers.
The Work Number is available to those needing your information 24 hours a day. No waiting for your lender or landlord to exchange paperwork with your employer to close the deal.
You authorize credentialed verifiers to retrieve your income information by signing a borrowers authorization form, and application for a benefit (such as a loan or social service request), or by creating a salary key (a onetime access code).
The Work Number database uses stringent security standards to help protect your data. There are also controls in place by law (the Fair Credit Reporting Act) to protect your privacy.
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.
We apply stringent data security standards combined with physical security controls to protect the data and assets in our data center(s).
