Employment Verification Letters

What Is it?

An employment verification letter, or proof of employment, indicates that you are a New York State employee and in some cases states your salary. Here are some instances when you might need it:

  • Applying for a mortgage
  • Moving into a new apartment
  • Proof of employment for a green card
  • Loan approvals
  • NYS Housing Authority certifications
  • Reference checks
  • Daycare application
  • Other immigration proof

What Is the Process?

If you need an employment verification letter:

  1. The company, bank, or financial institution you are working with will send you the request.
  2. Sign the letter to authorize the BSC to release your information.
    • You may sign the letter at their office and have them send the request to us with your authorization already completed.
  3. Send the original, signed letter to the BSC Payroll team (contact information below).
    • You may request a copy of the letter.
  4. We will return the original letter directly to the business requesting the information. 


  • Once we receive a complete request, it takes 7-10 business days for the BSC to process the request.
  • Have the forms sent to the BSC as soon as possible.
  • Plan as early as you can - don't wait!
