Banks often ask you to furnish your credit card request with salary certificate signed by your employer or any appropriate person who is responsible to perform such tasks. The banks do so generally in order to get the information the recent salary you are receiving.
Sometimes, the bank also specifies the time period of salary. When you write the request letter to your boss, you will have to specify that time period for which you want him to issue a salary certificate.
There are different stack holders in an organization. In order to successfully receive the requested documents, you are required to address the right person in the request letter. Decide it carefully that you have to address in this letter.
In some cases, you should contact your supervisor as well as HR manager to let them about your need for salary certificate. This will be beneficial for you since it will bring both of them on the same page and they will decide it mutually whether or not they should issue the salary certificate.
Write the letter with complete information about yourself so that the reader can identify you. Make a request for the salary certificate straight. Also, tell the reason for requesting.
Express your appreciation if your boss gets back to you with the salary certificate upon your request.
