The University of Dayton uses The Work Number® to provide automated employment and income verifications on our employees.  The UD Work Number employer code is 14803.

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 rely on The Work Number for rapid access to information critical to their decision process, and over 2,900 employers nationwide have entrusted The Work Number to provide this important service on behalf of their employees.

Here’s How it Works:

  1. The University of Dayton securely transmits employment and income data to The Work Number on a regular cycle, so the information remains current.
  2. When you apply for credit or other services where proof of employment or income is required, you provide consent to the credit grantor to verify that information when signing the application.
  3. The verifier—who has been carefully screened and credentialed before gaining access to the system—uses the University of Dayton's employer code and your Social Security Number to look up your record on The Work Number database.  (Go to Account Access below for additional information. Please note you will be prompted for your UD login credentials.)
  4. The verifier must provide a valid reason or permissible purpose for requesting the information, as defined by the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA).
  5. With the above conditions met, the verifier can validate your employment or income in seconds, accelerating the decision process and helping you obtain the credit you deserve.
