“We’re committed to creating greater financial opportunities for consumers, while helping lenders extend credit responsibly,” said
Experian’s new partnership with Citadel API allows consumers to quickly permission access to their payroll accounts when applying for a loan, mortgage or employment by authorizing use of their payroll provider login credentials. Using this consumer permissioned data, Experian will deliver a verified income and employment report back to the lender or verifier.
“Experian understands that investing in Citadel API’s technology can improve their customer’s experience,” said
Adding consumer permissioned access to payroll data to Experian’s Verification of Income and Employment suite of services is the next step in Experian’s long-term commitment to expanding its consumer permissioned verification capabilities. Experian’s first consumer permissioned solution, Experian AccountView™ was introduced in 2016 and continues to receive strong interest and adoption from lenders. Experian AccountView leverages permissioned bank data to help lenders quickly verify income, employment and assets.
Both consumer permissioned offerings as well as Experian Verify™ – Experian’s real-time income and employment solution – give lenders maximum coverage options for verifying income and employment so they can avoid complex and costly manual processes. Experian Verify provides lenders, employment screeners and government verifiers instant access to millions of active payroll records from Experian’s growing network of exclusive employer records. The solution launched earlier this spring and has already become one of Experian’s most successful product adoptions.
