Employment Verification

Are you applying for credit, leasing or renting, financing a purchase, or applying for government services?  If yes, we’ve made it a lot easier for you to get proof of income or employment when you need it without calling HR. 

Texas A&M University – Commerce uses The Work Number® to provide automated employment and income verifications on our employees. 

We have partnered with The Work Number® database, which is a simple, quick, and private way to get your employment and income information to companies when needed.  It's available 24/7 so that you can get the decisions you need when you need them. 

 From now on when asked for proof of employment or income, just send them to: 

 What The Work Number offers you? 


Your personal information is protected. With your consent, your personal data can be retrieved only by credentialed verifiers. 


The Work Number is available to those needing your information 24 hours a day. No waiting for your lender or landlord to exchange paperwork with your employer to close the deal. 


You authorize credentialed verifiers to retrieve your income information by signing a borrowers authorization form, and application for a benefit (such as a loan or social service request), or by creating a salary key (a onetime access code).  


The Work Number database uses stringent security standards to help protect your data. There are also controls in place by law (the Fair Credit Reporting Act) to help protect your privacy. 

Another plus with The Work Number service is it lets you check to make sure all your information is correct.  The Employment Data Report (EDR) is required by the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) so you can see your personal information and who used it.
