Where can I get a copy of my employment history?

unemployed_personA) There are a few different places where you can get a copy of your employment history.

  • Your former employers. You can contact your former employers and request a copy of your employment records. Most employers are required to keep employment records for at least three years.
  • The Social Security Administration. You can request a copy of your Social Security Earnings Information from the Social Security Administration. This will show you your employment dates, employer names and addresses, and earnings.
  • Your state’s unemployment office. You can request a copy of your unemployment benefits history from your state’s unemployment office. This will show you the dates you were unemployed, the amount of benefits you received, and the reason for your unemployment.
  • Your tax returns. If you have filed your tax returns, you can use them to reconstruct your employment history. Your tax returns will show you the names and addresses of your former employers, as well as the dates you worked for them.

Once you have gathered all of your employment records, you can put them together to create a complete employment history. This can be a valuable document to have when you are applying for jobs or applying for benefits.

Please also call or visit your local unemployment office for a print out of your employment records.
