Verification of Employment and Salary

The Work NumberĀ®, an independent service, provides a secure way for current and former employees (up to three years* following separation) to authorize third party verifiers (such as lenders, landlords, and social service agencies) to confirm their NYU employment and salary information.

To utilize The Work Number service, call 800-996-7566 or click here to access the website.

Accessing the site:

  • NYU Company Code: 10617
  • User ID: Your social security number
  • PIN: Users are asked to enter a default personal identification number (PIN) upon first-time login. When prompted, enter the last 4 digits of your social security number, your 2-digit birth month, and the last 2 digits of your birth year (XXXXMMYY). You will later be prompted to change your password.

* Individuals who are separated from the University for more than three years may request written authorization to verify employment by completing the Employee Request for Verification of Employment form (PDF).
