Letter of Verification of Employment

A letter of verification of employment is a letter that is used to verify that you are currently employed in a certain position. Letters of verification of employment are commonly used when applying for a bank loan or when signing a lease agreement with a landlord. They are used to signify stability and that you will have an income coming in so you can make payments.

Keep it short, a letter of verification is not a reference, it is just to provide proof of employment.


List job title, length of employment and salary if warranted.


Ask the recipient if they require any further details.
