Employment Verifications

The City of Chesapeake now uses The Work Number® to provide automated employment and income verifications for its employees. The Work Number® from Equifax is a fast and secure way to provide proof of employment or income, a necessary step in many of today's life events including obtaining credit, financing a home or automobile, obtaining a housing lease, or securing government benefits or services. The Work Number® simplifies the verification process and accelerates qualifying decisions through an online system available to verifiers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The City of Chesapeake's employer ID is 20021.

Hundreds of thousands of credentialed verifiers rely on The Work Number® for rapid access to information critical to their decision process, and thousands of employers nationwide have entrusted The Work Number® to provide this important service on behalf of their employees.

Additionally, employees who work for organizations that contribute information to The Work Number® can access one free Employment Data Report (EDR) each year through The Work Number website. The EDR provides complete historical employment and income information, as well as a listing of verifier requests for the past two years.
