Experian recently announced its expansion into Employer Services and the release of a new suite of real-time income and employment verification products, Experian Verify™.
The COVID-19 pandemic amplified lenders’ need for deeper insights into a consumer’s financial situation. At the same time, employers were flooded with record-breaking unemployment claims, while managing stay-at-home orders, income and employment verification fulfillment requests, and more.
“We’re committed to helping employers, businesses, lenders, and consumers on the road to recovery from the pandemic and beyond,” said Alex Lintner, Group President Experian Consumer Information Services. “To support this, we’re building two businesses: Experian Employer Services and Verification Solutions. These businesses will create meaningful change and provide our clients with competitive options to achieve their verification needs while helping improve access to credit for consumers.”
With Experian Verify, lenders can quickly and easily create a more complete picture of a consumer’s financial situation by verifying an applicant’s income and employment status.
Powered by our growing network of payroll and proprietary employer data, Experian Verify offers lenders flexible and secure access to income and employment records. With a consumer’s consent, lenders can request the information from Experian and an income and employment report can be delivered to lenders through an API, online Experian dashboard, or paired with an Experian credit report.
“As we begin to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic and employers are reopening their doors, we’re confident we have assembled the best-of-the-best to help employers overcome their toughest challenges. We’re committed to leveraging our combined capabilities and focus on high-touch customer service to deliver secure, scalable and transparent services to employers,” said Michele Bodda, President of Experian Mortgage, Employer Services and Verification solutions.
