State of Vermont Employment Verification

Employee Verification Requests

Please read this entire section and follow each step before submitting your request.  Requests are often time-sensitive and any error in submission can cause delays in processing.

Turnaround Time:

The State of Vermont strives to process all initial verification requests within three (3) full business days.


Requests (both written and verbal) will only be processed provided you have submitted the following, via fax, email, or USPS mail:

  • A signed, and dated, Borrower’s/Employee’s Authorization to Release information on their behalf. Electronic/Digital signatures are fine as long as they are dated
  • Borrower’s/Employee’s last Four of their Social Security Number. Please make an effort to send an Authorization that is dated within 3 months of the verification request.
  • Your full contact information.

Re-verifications:  Every effort will be made to respond within one (1) full business day of receipt.  Verbal re-verification can be honored as long as a Borrower’s/Employee’s Authorization is on file, and you provide the handwritten 5 digit number that we provide next to the employee’s name on the original verification or the last four digits of the Social Security Number.  This abbreviated re-verification process will expire after three (3) months.  Following that period, a full verification request must be (re)submitted.
