Letter of Verification

A letter of verification can be used in any situation where the recipient’s status needs to be confirmed in writing. This could be confirmation of employment and salary, college or university attendance, qualifications and degrees, or even marriage. The US Social Security Administration may also send letters of verification upon request to confirm your SS number, amount of benefits received and other related information.


A letter of verification can be used to verify an employee’s employment. They are commonly used when applying for a bank loan or trying a rent an apartment. They are informal, simple, and straight to the point. They usually include the duration of time the employee has been employed in their current position.
