Employment Verifications

LAST UPDATED: May 31, 2017

What You Should Know

If you need a personal employment or wage verification for a third party, you may send a request with your authorization to release the information to the Financial Service Center if you are a student. Verifications for Faculty and Staff can be completed through The Work Number by Equifax for third  party verifiers, or requested through the Office of Human Resources for a personal verification.

Normal turnaround time for employment verifications is two business days.


Students may mail or fax their wage or employment request to the Financial Service Center.  All requests must include authorization for the University to release the information. Requests for pay or employment verification must include the year or time period, the specific information requested (earnings, length of employment), and where the form should be sent when complete.

Mail, email, or fax forms to:

Financial Service Center
7 New South
Princeton, NJ 08544
Fax: 609-258-5040
Email: finance@princeton.edu

Walk-in assistance is also available at the Financial Service Center, 7 New South, during regular University business hours.

Faculty or Staff

The Work Number by Equifax is a fast and secure way to provide proof of employment or income. It simplifies the verification process and accelerates qualifying decisions through an online system available to verifiers 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. For more information, visit the HR website. Faculty and staff requesting verifications of employment or income that cannot be processed through The Work Number must make requests in writing and include a signed authorization form. Your signature authorizing the release of information is required. If the signature is not on the form, it will delay processing. HR makes every attempt to complete verifications in a timely fashion.
