Augusta University Employment Verifications

Augusta University uses The Work Number® System through Equifax to provide automated employment and income verifications for our employees.  The Work Number is a fast and secure way to provide proof of employment or income. The Work Number simplifies the verification process through an online system available to verifiers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
