Employment and Income Verification

For fast, secure, anytime/anywhere proof of employment or income via the web or phone, we bring you … The Work Number.

Cast & Crew has selected The Work Number® service from Equifax to provide automated income and employment verifications. The Work Number reduces our risk of liability from providing erroneous or unauthorized information, and our employees receive the benefit of rapid verification completion, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This service is used when you apply for a loan, need a reference check, lease an apartment or any other instance where proof of employment or income is needed. You benefit from having control of the process – by authorizing others access to your information.
