Verification of employment

The University of Wisconsin System uses The Work Number® to provide automated employment and income verifications on our employees.

The Work Number is a fast and secure way to provide proof of your employment or income—a necessary step in many of today’s life events involving credit, financing, or securing of non-university benefits or services. The Work Number simplifies the verification process and accelerates credit decisions through an online system available to verifiers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. More than 200,000 credentialed verifiers rely on The Work Number for rapid access to information critical to their decision process, and over 2,900 employers nationwide have entrusted The Work Number to provide this important service on behalf of their employees.

More information about The Work Number can be found on the UW System VOE website.

We have further information on our website about employment verifications for the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program.

NOTE: Verification for employees whose separation date was in 2012 or prior, please have your request faxed to UW Shared Services at 608-890-2327, ATTN: VOE.
