THE WORK NUMBER® is a service of Equifax that provides employees with an automated process to handle employment and income verifications. It allows our employees to have their employment and income verified within a matter of minutes. This fast, secure service is used for mortgage applications, reference checks, loan applications, apartment leases, government aid or most other applications that require proof of employment.

It is quick, convenient and best of all, it’s easy.



Here's How it Works

Step 1. Temple University’s Payroll Management department provides updated employment and income files to THE WORK NUMBER® after each payroll cycle.

Step 2. The employee provides the verifier his/her social security number, our employer code, and employee authorization if the verifier needs income.

Step 3. The verifier contacts THE WORK NUMBER® and enters the information. The verifier can contact THE WORK NUMBER® via the Internet or 800 phone number.

Step 4. The Internet displays the information and the 800 number voices the information. If the verifier accesses the data via the Web site, he/she is able to print a copy of the verification from their desktop. If the verifier accesses data via the 800 number, the caller has the option to enter a fax number when prompted, and the system automatically sends a fax with all of the information.
