Get 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. Just so you know, your consent is generally provided at point-of-application (for example, when you sign a loan application), and a Salary Key is not normally needed — actually less than 1% of the time in most cases. But if a verifier asks you to provide one, The Work Number website makes it easy to get one.

Visit The Work Number employees page and login to learn more, the Employer Code is 157340.

The new Salary Key can be printed or emailed with instructions for the verifier on how to use it through The Work Number.

Note — At any point, select the "Salary Key Activity" link to view the status (used, unused, expired) of keys created. Salary Keys expire after 90 days.
