Employment verification

Virginia Commonwealth University has contracted with a third party partner to provide automated employment and income verifications through the service The Work Number. Please see the instructions below accessible to both verifiers and employees.


To verify employment for all full-time faculty, staff and part-time employees, including adjunct faculty, hourly and student workers, visit The Work Number. The verifier will need to supply the company code and the employee's social security number.

  • For VCU, use employer code 19114.
  • Verifications of employment can also be completed via phone by calling The Work Number at (800) 367-5690. Registration is required to proceed in both cases.


To request a verification of employment or a verification of income for oneself, visit The Work Number verification. This link will allow the employee to login to The Work Number (TWN) via their VCU single sign-on ID through the Central Authentication Service.

  • From the home screen, employees can either:
    • Prove Employment to Verifiers
    • Prove Income to Verifiers 
  • If employees would like to call, contact 1-800-996-7566

Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF)

Public Service Loan Forgiveness forms should be sent to askhr@vcu.edu for completion.

  • Send Section 3 and 4 of the PSLF to askhr@vcu.edu for completion. It will then be signed off and returned as soon as possible.
  • When you send your form to askhr@vcu.edu please include in the email, the name you had when you were an active VCU employee in cases where you had a name change.
  • It would be safer to leave your SS# off the form. You can add it once you receive the signed copy back.
  • If possible, employees are asked to verify their employment for the PSLF on their own by using the employee verification steps listed above through The Work Number verification prior to sending it to askhr@vcu.edu
