Appointment Verification Requests

From time to time, employers/universities have a legitimate need to verify a postdoc's appointment dates. 

Verifications require:

  • Name of the Postdoc

  • Appointment dates at Stanford

  • Authorization to Release Information form, signed by the postdoc:  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.
