Salary Keys

  • Creating Salary Keys

    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. The purpose of this document is to provide you with steps in order to generate a Salary Key, a single-use, six-digit code that you can provide to a verifier as consent to access your income

    Note – In most cases, your consent is provided at the point of application for a service—when you sign a loan application or similar agreement—and a Salary Key is not required, but if you are asked to provide one from the verifier, the below instructions will show you how.
