Accessing The Work Number to Create a Salary Key

A Salary Key is a single-use, six-digit code that you can provide to a verifier as consent to access your income information. In most cases, your consent is provided at the point of application for a service (for example, when you sign a loan application or similar agreement), and in these cases, a Salary Key is not required. A Salary Key is never required for verification of employment; it may be required for verification of income.

If you are asked to provide a Salary Key, use the instructions in this job aid to log on to The Work Number® and generate a Salary Key to provide to your income verifier.
