    For Current Employees

    All verification of employment and salary is accessed through The Work Number. You will be able to access The Work Number whenever you need to have employment or salary verified, i.e. loan applications, housing, automobile purchases, leases, etc. The verifiers, lender, or landlord should no longer send employment or salary verification forms to the Human Resources Department.
