Introducing Automated Income & Employment Verification
The Work Number from Equifax can reduce work for you and
keep life moving for your employees.


Employees rely upon employers to provide verifications to support life events. Income and employment verifications can take valuable time away from strategic work. They can also put your organization and employee data privacy at risk. The Work Number ® from Equifax automates verifications when your employees are purchasing/leasing a home or a car, when requesting government benefits and more.


How it Works

Automated Service

Reduces the paperwork. The Work Number service can lessen your manual verification workload.

Reduced Risk

When you respond directly to verification requests, your organization might be at risk for fraud or error. The Work Number automates the verification response and reduces risk over a manual HR verification process.

Benefits Employees

Faster and more informed decisions by lenders and government agencies can improve opportunities for credit and aid.


Governed by the Fair Credit Reporting Act

The Work Number is governed by the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), which helps ensure Verifiers have a valid reason to obtain employment information and employees can see who has requested their information and can dispute information that may be incorrect.


Privacy and Security

The Work Number uses stringent security standards to help protect employee information including data encryption, physical security controls, and user identity verification. Requests are typically initiated by employees, usually at the time of application, and only accepted from credentialed verifiers.   

More than 23% of all instant verification completed through The Work Number service were completed after business hours or over the weekend.*
