Earlier this year, an underwriting department informed me they are no longer allowed to accept TheWorkNumber for employment verification purposes on any Fannie Mae Freddie Mac loans because of potential fraud issues. A second, unrelated broker is now telling me he can't use it as well.
If this is an official position, I can't find reference to it anywhere. Does this just depend on the lender I'm working with? Has anyone else come across this issue? I'd like nothing more than for companies to be forced to provide some other means. The worst part of applying for any loan is dealing with TheWorkNumber.
