Employment and Salary Verification
The University of Kansas Medical Center and University of Kansas use The Work Number® (TALX Corporation) to provide automated employment and income verifications for our employees.
The Work Number is an automated service that provides you with the ability to quickly provide proof of your employment or income. You benefit from having control of the process, since you can authorize access to your salary information. The Work Number provides verification services for over 50 million employees. It is widely used by mortgage lenders, banks, apartment complexes and others (verifiers) who may need proof of employment or income, and it is easy for them to use. The Work Number will be used when you need employment or salary verification when buying or renting a home, purchasing or leasing a car or applying for any type of loan or credit. Neither KUMC nor The Work Number will charge an employee for this service.
Both the Medical Center and Lawrence organizations have provided historical income and employment information dating back to calendar year 2013. Updates are sent every biweekly payday. Faculty, staff, students and retirees with active online IDs may access through the myKUMC portal under Pay & Benefits. A telephone option is also available.
If you have held employment with another organization/company that uses this service, your prior data will be shown along with your KUMC data on your Employment Data Report. Verifiers do not have access to see your Employment Data Report, it is for your personal use. Neither KUMC nor The Work Number will charge an employee for this service.
The Work Number can be used anytime, anywhere - available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Verifiers are required to secure your signature on their document(s) for income verification.
