What documentation will verify my income?

All documentation must: 

  • have your name and the company name listed
  • be recent - normally within the last 30 days
  • be clear and complete (make sure we can see all 4 corners and can read everything) 
  • be your personal income  

If you don’t have the documents we’ve asked for, you may be able to submit something else as long as it demonstrates and confirms your reported income. 

Find your income type below to see what document we’ll accept to verify your source of income. We will require different documentation depending on your employment status.

Full Time and Part Time Employment (W2 Employee)

  • Most recent pay stub (within 30 days) showing your salary or hourly wage
    • If you do not have your first pay stub yet, please submit your official job offer stating your compensation and start date.

  • W2 with recent paycheck image and a bank statement that shows that paycheck deposited.

Additional Compensation: Such as a bonus or commission

  • Include an offer letter that states your target bonus or commission structure

OR

  • Provide your last pay stub of the previous year

If you don't have either of these documents, we will consider the bonus/commission you’ve earned thus far this year that we can verify.
