Updated February 19, 2022

A wage verification form may be used by any private or public organization seeking the confirmation of income by an individual. The document must be filled in by the employer providing information related to the employee’s work schedule, hours worked per week (on average), hourly rate ($/HR) or salary, and any bonuses or tips earned. Once complete, the employer should return the form to the requestor only (not the employee).

Child Care Assistance – The most common use of this form is by child support services (DHS) when evaluating how much a spouse should pay for the care of their child. However, this form may be used for any type of wage verification.
