Employment & Income Verifications

The Work Number, in cooperation with the Department, provides a secure and convenient way to authorize third-party verifiers (like lenders, landlords, social service agencies, and prospective employers) to verify your employment and/or income.

Benefits of this Service:

  • Easier loan approvals
  • Improved Confidentiality – Your HR department is no longer filling out your requests for employment or income verification.
  • Much Faster – Many employers can take a week or more to fill out a request for verification of employment or income. The Work Number can reduce this to minutes.
  • Improved Security – You are in control of authorizing the verification of your own data.
  • Improved Accuracy – The Work Number does not change the data that your employer provides, and it eliminates the chance of the human error.

Visit the Work Number website and enter the Commerce Company Code of 10342, your social security number, and a Personal Identification Number (PIN). (Your PIN is the four-digit number denoting the month and day of your birth. For example, if your birth month and day are January 15, your PIN is 0115).

For additional information, check the Work Number FAQ.

Customer Services: The Work Number staff has a dedicated client service center to assist employees and verifiers. Their customer service team can be reached 5 days a week, 7am - 8pm CST at 1-800-996-7566 (Voice) or 1-800-424-0253 (TTY)
