Employment Verification

Applying for a mortgage? Renting an apartment? Buying a car? Verifiers and employees can use Experian Verify to easily retrieve accurate employment and income information.

Experian Verify is an employment verification system that automates income and employment verification services for employees. This system provides income verification, employment verification, social service request, or a custom verification letter. It eliminates all internal manual verification labor for the University through a secure and employee consent-driven process.

Using Experian's automated process will speed up the employment verification process when applying for big loans like cars and mortgages which is a big benefit to all University employees!

Experian has employment data for all employees who have been employed since 1/1/2020, but if a verification request comes in for someone who separated from employment prior to 1/1/2020 Experian will be unable to provide verification. In these scenarios, please have the vendor or former employee reach out directly to the Payroll Office ( for verification.

A Verifier is a lender, pre-employment screening firm, prospective employer or other entity that needs to verify employment or income for an individual.
