How do I create a Salary Authorization Code?
For security and privacy reasons, a verifier cannot create a Salary Authorization Code. Only the employee or former employee of the employer can create a Salary Authorization Code. If you are a verifier and need to be able to obtain historical payroll information for an applicant/employee, the applicant/employee must create an account under the “Employee” section of www.evadvantage.com
. Once the account has been created and approved, the applicant/employee can create a one-time use Salary Authorization Code (multiple Salary Authorization Codes may be created, up to 5 at one time). The applicant/employee can provide the Salary Authorization Code to a verifier to obtain current year’s earnings as well as the prior two year’s salary information. Once the Salary Authorization Code has been used it cannot be used again. If the Salary Authorization Code has not been used within 30 days, the Code will expire and not be valid. To view payroll data again another Salary Authorization Code will be needed. If assistance is needed, please contact 877-783-0240 or firstname.lastname@example.org
