Appointment Verification Requests

The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (OPA) verifies appointment dates for postdocs appointed through Stanford.

Verifications require:

  • Name of the Postdoc

  • Appointment dates at Stanford

  • Authorization to release information (signed by the postdoc).

Use OPA's  Verification Request Form.

Allow 30 days for processing. Do not send multiple requests for the same verification as that creates processing delays.

Other verifications:

  • Postdoctoral Benefits/Proof of Insurance: Contact Postdoc Benefits.

  • Student Loan Deferments: click here

  • Home/Auto Loans: Contact your postdoc admin, not OPA.

OPA cannot process verifications for Stanford Medicine Hospital programs, Lucille Packard Children's Hospital programs, HHMI, SLAC, or employment.
