How it Works

The Work Number

The Work Number® can reduce work for you and keep life moving for your employees! APS Payroll has partnered with The Work Number® to deliver trusted Income and Employment Verification services at no cost to your company.

How it Works
Employees rely upon employers to provide verifications to support life events. Income and employment verifications can take valuable time away from strategic work. They can also put your organization and employee data privacy at risk. The Work Number® automates verifications when your employees are purchasing/leasing a home or a car when requesting government benefits, and more.

Automated Service
Forget the paperwork. The Work Number® service can lessen your manual verification workload.

Reduced Risk
When you respond directly to verification requests, your organization might be at risk for fraud or error. The Work Number® automates the verification response and reduces risk over a manual HR verification process.

Benefits Employees
Faster and more informed decisions by lenders and government agencies can improve opportunities for credit and aid.

Governed by the Fair Credit Reporting Act
The Work Number® is governed by the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), which helps ensure Verifiers have a valid reason to obtain employment information, and employees can see who has requested their information and can dispute information that may be incorrect.

Privacy and Security
The Work Number® uses stringent security standards to help protect employee information, including data encryption, physical security controls, and user identity verification. Requests are initiated by employees, usually at the time of application, and only accepted from credentialed verifiers.

More than 23% of all instant verifications completed through The Work Number® service were completed after business hours or over the weekend.*

Income and Employment Verification service will be added to your payroll offering at no cost to your company. Here is more information on how it works.

This service is automatically available to current APS clients.
