Please remember the Work Number is for use only if you cannot obtain an employment verification or six current consecutive pay stubs.
The paystub totals and year-to-date figure on the Work Number do not show the detail that is included in an Employment Verification OR actual paystubs; overtime, bonuses, and shift differentials cannot be calculated from these general numbers, and scheduled raises are not shown. Often the Work Number is a few weeks behind and does not have current figures.
Our Specialists have seen a sharp increase in the use of this ‘last resort” verification, the cost of which is billed back to the property at the end of the month. Using Employment Verifications and/or obtaining paystubs is a great way to show KPI progress!
