Problem

Verifications aren't easy

Manual verifications require a team of experts to call employers or verify uploaded documents, and the alternative—bearing high costs and dealing with TWN—is even worse. That’s why we built Citadel.

Manual verifications are time-consuming

×
Verifying by calling employers can take days
×
1 out of 12 pay stubs are fraudulent
×
Growing a verifications team is a hustle

Automated verifications are overpriced

×
Low coverage of working Americans
×
Regular price hikes and ambiguous pricing
×
Cost 3-5 times more than manual verifications
Solution

Citadel can automatically verify employment and income
(in 30 seconds or less)

By integrating directly with payroll providers, Citadel gets all the information you need for verifications—and does it within 30 seconds.

Step 1

The user selects their employer

The user finds their employer and selects their payroll provider. We support the 35 most commonly used payroll providers, offering 85% coverage of the US workforce.

What if the user doesn’t know their payroll provider?
We’ve mapped over 100,000 companies to their payroll providers to make finding their provider easy.
Step 2

Then they log in to their payroll provider

Once the user enters their login and password, we take care of the rest. We handle security questions and two factor authentication right in the app, connecting to a user’s data in under 30 seconds.

What if the user forgets their credentials?
With our simple credentials reset process, it takes 30 seconds to get a new password.
Step 3

That’s it—the verification is complete!

We access their data, structure it for you, and return it in an easy-to-use-format via API or to your Citadel dashboard. And it happens instantly for 35% of candidates thanks to our extensive coverage.

What information can I access?
Payroll data is powerful and consists of over 100 data points to verify income and employment.
