Employment Verification

The University of Houston System has partnered with The Work Number to assist in handling employment and payroll verifications. The Work Number automates the employment and payroll verification process instantly online through a fast and secure connection. The service allows verifiers to receive current, as well as past UH employee, employment dates. In addition, employees are able to review their work data to ensure it is correct. The Work Number verifies the following data:

  • Employee name
  • Most recent hire date
  • Termination date (if no longer employed)
  • Total time with company
  • Job title
  • Rate of pay (if salary code is provided by employee)
  • Gross earnings for current year-to-date, including base pay, overtime, bonuses and commissions
  • Gross earnings for last year and two years past, including base pay, overtime, bonuses and commissions

Verifiers can contact The Work Number at 1-800-367-5690 or www.theworknumber.com and enter employer code 17781 and provide the employee's social security number.

Employees can utilize the system by logging in at www.theworknumber.com, using their PeopleSoft Id number and default pin of their date of birth MMDDYYYY. If additional assistance is needed when logging in, please call the customer service center at 1-800-367-2884.
