Employment and Wage Verifications


This policy applies to all employment and wage verifications for current and former RIT employees.


Policy Statement

The Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) will provide official employment and wage verification through The Work Number, an external automated verification system.  Typically verifications are requested by verifying companies for mortgage applications, loan applications, apartment leases or other reference checks.  There is no cost to the employee for this service.



Verification of employment can be obtained with or without wage information from The Work Number at http://www.theworknumber.com/Employees/ or 1-800-367-2884.  The Rochester Institute of Technology's employer code is 15083.

For FAQ and additional information please refer to the Customer Support link at https://www.rit.edu/fa/controller/payroll.

Legal Inquiries

All subpoenas or any other legal process requesting employee information must be referred to the Office of Legal Affairs. RIT complies with its duty to release information requested by government agencies having the authority to make such requests.
