Employment Verification

Employment & Income Verifications

Guidance on how to obtain Employment Verification information can be found using the following contact points: 

You may email our shared service provider, Enterprise Services at enterpriseservicesHR@doc.gov or follow the directions in the section below to receive the information you need through The Work Number.

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.
