Verification of Employment

Are you applying for a mortgage/lease, credit, or financing a purchase? If so, University Human Resources has made it easier for you to get proof of income or employment when you need it.

William & Mary partnered with The Work Number, a simple, quick, and private way to get your employment and income information to companies. It is available 24/7 and The Work Number provides information only to credentialed verifiers who have legally established business reasons for verifying income and employment. When you authorize an organization to verify your income or employment, please direct them to and ask them to use the employer code for William & Mary and VIMS (22654).

Other requests for verification of employment can be emailed to

Verbal verifications should be directed to 757-221-3169. Please allow 48 business hours for verification of employment, excluding weekends and holidays.

In addition, it is against university policy to email anything containing a social security number. Please do not include any social security numbers in requests.
