Quickly verify employment and income information for credit decisioning, mortgages, and government programs with some of the most comprehensive data assets available. Education verifications are also available.

Our Capabilities

We provide employment, income, and education information to lenders, credit issuers, government agencies, and others so they can make faster and more informed decisions.

Reliable Data for Fast Verifications

Verifying income and employment information requires quality data. Government agencies, loan providers and HR professionals need access to employer and payroll provided data to confirm information submitted by applicants for things like government benefits, mortgages, and jobs. 

Equifax delivers data provided directly from employers and payroll providers, along with sophisticated technology solutions, to help you quickly complete verifications with confidence. We use robust, real data — not modeled data — to help reduce uncertainty around your important business and eligibility decisions.
