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.

If you represent a company requesting employment verification, you 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
  • 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 Human Resources Compliance and Immigration Services (i.e. letter or invoice from the company and payment of the fee, receipt, copy of check)
