Below are some additional resources that may be helpful to you during your time as a student employee at FAU.

The Affordable Care Act

With the passage of the Affordable Care Act students who work an average of 30 hours or more per week, may become eligible for University health benefits. The Peoplefirst, the State of Florida’s benefits administrator, will monitor hours worked and will determine if one qualifies for insurance coverage. They will then contact eligible employees in writing about their eligibility. If you have additional questions about coverage under the Affordable Care Act, please contact our Benefits Department.

Employment   Verifications

FAU uses The Work Number for its employment verifications. This vendor can provide dates of employment as well as salary information. To use this service, please call 1-800-367-5690 and use employer code 13664.

Letters of verification can also be provided by the Student Employment office by request. If you would like to receive an official letter of verification, please send an email to stuemp@fau.edu  requesting the verification and include, your name and Z number. Please note that we can only verify dates of employment, title and salary information. Verifications requiring information about job duties and character attestation will need to be supplied by the department that you currently work for or have worked for in the past. There is a 48 hour turnaround time for verification letters.
