Employment and Income Verifications - Information for Employees

OSU and the A&M institutions have recently secured services of The Work Number® from Equifax to provide automated employment and/or income verifications of all OSU/A&M employees. The Work Number® streamlines the employment and income verification process.

Employment and/or income verifications are typically made when employees buy or refinance a home, rent a property, buy a vehicle, or apply for loans or credit. They can also be used to qualify for government benefits.

Prior to using The Work Number®, all verifier organizations must successfully pass a credentialing process, which validates legitimacy and permissible purpose, in compliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). In addition to permissible purpose, The Work Number® also requires that verifiers have documented consent of the employee-consumer to access income information. Consent is generally established via a signed acknowledgement at the point of application for a loan or service.

When you are asked for proof of your employment or income, please follow these two simple steps:

STEP 1                                                                                   

Provide your employer code 18255 and Social Security Number        

STEP 2

Direct the verifier to www.theworknumber.com
