After you apply to a listing, our team will verify your income. Income verification happens in two ways.
Income verification method #1: Bank account connection
You can connect your bank account using a third party service called Plaid. This is the most secure way for Apartment App to determine how much money you earned in recent months, and it works just as well for freelancers as for salaried employees since it is based purely on deposits to your account. Click here to connect your bank account to verify your income.
This method doesn't always work - if your income doesn't appear as verified within an hour, you'll need to verify your income with the method below.
Income verification method #2: Document upload
You can upload traditional income verification documents like an offer letter and pay stubs if you're in a hourly or salaried job. We recommend bank statements for verifying all types of income.
If you have other sources of income, you may need to upload tax returns and a CPA letter for us to verify.
Click here to upload documents to verify your income. Most landlords and property managers will need to see these documents, so we recommend that you add them to your profile even if the bank account connected accurately verified your income.
Keep in mind that document uploads are reviewed by a member of Apartment App's support team, and they may deem it necessary to call your employer in order to verify your employment status and income.
