The Work Number for Everyone
“The Work Number for Everyone” is a service that will allow you to provide almost instant verification for employment to secure a loan, rent an apartment, or anything else where employment verification is required. This automated, paperless service is available 17 hours a day, 7 days a week and provides employment and salary verification through a touch-tone phone to credit and reference verifiers upon request.
Each employee is responsible for authorizing the release of their employment and salary information. The credit and reference verifiers must receive an authorization code from you to access your information.
To obtain an authorization code, with a touch-tone telephone, you can call 1 (800) 367-2884. You will need the following information:
- USDA's company code *
- Your social security number
- Your individual PIN number *
* Please call (612) 336-3312 to obtain "USDA's company code" and "your individual PIN number." You can then access and print out Reference Cards through the NFC Website at the following address:
Once you've given the Reference Card to the verifier, it's their job to call 1-800-367-2884 to access your employment information. That's it, that's all there is to it. If you have any questions about “The Work Number for Everyone”, please contact your processor.
