What You Get

Instant Verification

The Work Number® provides automated employment and income verification to accelerate decisions for credit, loans, and government assistance on behalf of employees.

No-Cost Benefit

The Work Number–a no-cost service–benefits employers with time savings and increased security. Employees benefit because of privacy and improved opportunities for credit, loans, and aid.

Controlled Access

The Work Number complies with the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act, requiring all verifiers to go through a credentialing process to ensure access to information is legitimate.

Cost Management

Unemployment Cost Management, provided by Equifax, lowers unemployment costs by streamlining claims processing, recovering erroneous benefits charges, and providing expert guidance.

Automated Compliance

Our award-winning technology helps employers automate compliance with complex ACA regulations. Equifax has managed ACA compliance for over 48 million employees and more than 67,000 companies.

Maximized Tax Credits

Our proprietary Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) Management technology identifies and certifies more eligible applicants by simplifying the process and streamlining the document collection required.

How It Works

Employment & Income Verification

Heightened requirements in consumer lending means employers need to respond to an increasing number of employment and income verification requests. That’s why employers choose to utilize The Work Number by providing payroll information directly to Equifax for the service. Verifiers receive consent directly from an employee (via a loan application, government aid request, etc.), who then work directly with The Work Number® to verify the employees income and employment status, minimizing involvement from the employer.

Unemployment Cost Management

Employers send employee information to Equifax to manage their unemployment claims. This allows Equifax to work directly with the employer and their managers to lower unemployment costs by streamlining claims processing, recovering erroneous benefit charges, and providing guidance on hearings and appeals. Equifax also provides tax rate verifications and will protest any inaccurate assignment of State Unemployment.
