The University of Pittsburgh uses an automated service called The Work Number to securely provide employment and income verification to verifiers such as lenders, property managers and other employers that you authorize to have that information.

The Work Number can provide the following information, which is updated on a biweekly basis:

  • Name
  • Most recent hire date
  • Separation Date
  • Total Time with the University
  • Current or Former Job Title
  • Rate of Pay
  • Gross Earnings for current year and up to two years past – including Base Pay, Overtime, and Other Compensation

Verifiers will not see Rate of Pay or Earnings information without explicit employee authorization.
