We have enhanced the consumer portal for The Work NumberⓇ,
making it even simpler for individuals to view, understand and
control their employment data. The fully refreshed site now includes a
mobile-friendly design with enhanced accessibility, new educational
tools, and more robust processes for consumers to view and manage
their employment data.
When people apply for important services such as an
apartment lease, auto loan or government benefits, they often need
to provide proof of employment and/or income as part of the
application process. With The Work Number, that proof can be
provided to credentialed verifiers - such as landlords, banks or
government agencies - instantly and digitally, without the consumer
needing to set up a separate account with a third-party data sharing
firm or having to retrieve and print off pay stubs.
“The Work Number model starts with the individual’s
engagement and helps them keep important life events moving
forward with the highest-class quality, security, privacy and
convenience,” said Maria Hayes, Senior Vice President, Digital and
Experience at Equifax Workforce Solutions. “With our newly enhanced
portal, we are equipping consumers to better understand their
employment data and its uses, as well as to take greater control of
their data through our enhanced data freeze and data dispute functionality.”
Some key aspects of the upgraded consumer portal include:
24/7 access to expanded Help and Support content
including articles, user guides and
and private access for an individual to see their Employment Data
Report, so they can review their information in The Work
New Data Freeze page, with
explanations of options to freeze and unfreeze employment data as
well as access to the data freeze request form.
New Data Dispute Center, with explanations of what individuals
can expect during the data dispute process and a link to initiate
a dispute if needed.
Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2 Level AA conformance, helping
make the site more accessible for everyone.
Mobile friendly design, making it easier to use for today’s
“We encourage everyone to visit employees.theworknumber.com to learn
more about managing their employment data and to view their personal
Employment Data Report,” added Hayes. “We are also investing in

fulfillment, coming soon.”
