TALX Employment and Income Verification Services Now Available Through Fannie Mae's Anti-fraud Tools

ST. LOUIS, Aug. 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- TALX Corporation (Nasdaq: TALX) announced today that its automated income and employment verification service, The Work Number(R), is now available through Fannie Mae's Anti-fraud Tools as a documentation source in lieu of borrower provided documentation.

Lenders are required to review copies of borrower pay stubs and W-2s as third party documentation to verify income and employment. Now, as an alternative to this paper intensive process, the automated verification of employment and income services provided by The Work Number may be used for these verification purposes.

The Work Number is currently available to users of Fannie Mae's Anti-fraud Tools suite. For more information on these Anti-fraud Tools, please visit Fannie Mae's web site at http://www.efanniemae.com.
