Verification of Employment FAQs

At times throughout your employment, there may be instances when you are required to verify your wage or employment history. These instances include; securing a mortgage, buying a car, or providing information to a government agency for a social service entitlement. To facilitate these transactions, GVSU has partnered with i2Verify and securely transmits information to i2Verify to fulfill wage and employment verifications.

i2Verify provides different types of verifications for different purposes. For example, if you are looking to rent an apartment, your landlord may want to verify your current employment. A mortgage company will typically need to verify your income before providing you with a loan. i2Verify can meet each of these needs.

i2Verify automates the verification process by instantly and securely delivering employment information that requestors such as banks or government agencies rely on to make credit granting or benefit entitlement decisions (mortgages, loans, etc.).

Utilizing i2Verify for employment and wage verification will benefit GVSU employees in multiple ways:

  • Reduced turnaround time: Employees and verifiers no longer need to contact HR for verification requests. Employees are able to generate their own reports and letters on demand, as many times needed and free of charge. Properly credentialed verifiers, such as banks or mortgage companies, can also securely access employment verification data at any time. By eliminating the need for internal verifications through our systems, i2Verify reduces the turnaround time associated with employment or wage verification.
  • Pro-active verifier screening, credentialing and auditing: Each company requesting a verification on your behalf is properly vetted and credentialed which makes i2Verify’s employment verification process very secure. Not only does i2Verify validate the identity of all users of its system prior to allowing access to sensitive employee data, but a complete audit trail of every verification is created and then is made available to employees.
  • Transparency and visibility into data: Through the i2Verify employee portal, employees are allowed complete visibility into the verification process. Employees can block access to their data, generate their own reports, or choose to be notified when someone views their data.
  • Dedicated support team and consistent SLAs: We are assigned a six-person dedicated service team. This service team will be responsible for the implementation, management and monitoring of all Service Level Standards.

It’s simple. If an organization needs to verify your wage or employment history, simply direct them to i2Verify at i2Verify will then register the requestor, validate that they have your consent, as well as a permissible purpose to view your data.

i2Verify is also available to all employees, free of charge. You can generate your own verification reports and letters on demand.
