Employment Verification

 We now offer Income/Social Service employment verifications through

Mansfield University is one of more than 2,900 employers offering secure, fast current employment and income verifications via The Work Number. The Work Number is an automated service that securely provides instant employment and income verifications. It can be used when applying for a loan, buying a car, leasing an apartment, qualifying for public assistance, or similar instances where proof of employment or income is needed.
