Employment Verifications and Student Loan Forgiveness

The Madison Metropolitan School District has partnered with Equifax and The Work Number to handle all Verifications of Employment, Verification of Income, and Social Services Verification requests. The Work Number is a fast and secure way to provide proof of your employment or income—a necessary step in many of today’s life events involving credit, financing, or securing of benefits or services. The Work Number simplifies the verification process and accelerates credit decisions through an online system available to verifiers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. More than 200,000 credentialed verifiers (leading mortgage companies, pre-employment screeners, banks, social service agencies and others) access The Work Number to retrieve this critical information-direct from employer payroll feeds- rapidly and securely.

We Use The Work Number to Verify:

Employees should direct the lending institution, property manager, or other business requesting employment or income information to contact The Work Number.
