We are very pleased to announce that, as of May 1, 2019, the University of Washington switched to i2Verify to provide employment and income verifications for current and former UW employees. Previously, the ISC’s support team handled verification requests.
Employment and income verifications are often required when employees are trying to secure a mortgage or rental, buy a car, or apply for social service entitlements. i2Verify is a leading provider of employment and income verifications, and already has an established relationship with most lenders, property managers, pre-employment screeners and government agencies who require employment and income verifications.
The benefits of transitioning employment and income verification requests to i2Verify include:
- Quicker verifications: Because i2Verify’s online portal is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, turnaround time for requests is greatly reduced – and in some instances is even same-day!
- Improved security: i2Verify validates the identity of requestors using multi-factor authentication. In addition, employees will be notified whenever anyone requests their employment verification, and a complete audit trail of every request is available to employees so they can quickly monitor who has requested what about their employment and income history.
- Freeing up ISC staff to focus on other cases: Verification requests are time-consuming, and as one of the largest employers in the state, the caseload is significant. With i2Verify handling verification requests, the ISC’s support staff will have more time to focus on what they do best: helping our employees with their Workday needs.
- And no cost to the University… or the employee! Both former and current UW employees can still request employment and income verifications at no charge using i2Verify.
Employees can continue to find information about how to request employment and income verification documentation on the ISC website on the Employment Verification Requests page.
