Is anyone else experiencing this issue when attempting to verify account. It's almost my deadline and I still have not heard back from support.

I feel like we should have been given more than 7 days notice about this. It makes no sense that Upwork will allow us to continue working on active contracts but won't give us access to our money. I don't drive and only use my ID for voting, essentially, and so my ID is actually expired. The process of going to the state DPS office to get a new once and having it mailed to me is about 3 weeks or so. I don't think it's right that Upwork will put a hold on my account - after I've been a freelancer for YEARS - when they have only given 7 days notice.

 

Is there not a way to extend this to 21 days so that it at least matches the time it takes to get an updated ID?

And by the way, I've already spent 2 hours with the CS on chat about this issue but none of my questions were answered. I don't have this many hours in the day, especially considering it will take me 8 hours or more just to get a new ID.

What ended up happening? Did Upwork give you an extension?

Everytime I try to start a video chat to verify my identity it refreshes to the job board page. It also does this when I try to go to the Help link in the site's footer. No idea why I keep getting redirected. I've tried multiple browsers.

Hi Rob, 


Before I proceed, I wanted to check if the issue persists if you clear your cookies, or used a different browser?

I don't have the option to verify my identity in my profile settings. Is it because my account is new? My profile just got approved, so I don't understand. I'm talking about uploading a photo ID and doing the video chat so that I have the blue icon next to my name.
