I am currently freelancing under my married surname. However, Upwork has asked me to submit a verification identity until this Friday to keep working.

The problem is I don't think I have any ID that shows my new surname, though I did plan to get one before, I wasn't allowed to go out due to COVID restrictions in the country because I am pregnant. 

I do have a marriage certificate available. Can someone help me out please? Thank you.

they replied, with a canned response that proved they did not read anything i said. 

it basically pointed to the article saying you need to identify and nothing else. its clear what im asking is not what the response was aimed at

I got the email to verify my ID for the ID VERIFY BEDGE. I tried to complete the process multiple times but it is not accepting my ID proof because there is only "VIKAS" in my government ID proof and here my ID is "Vikas K". There is no last name in my government ID proof but Upwork does not accept the ID proof without the last name. Now, Upwork is not verifying my ID and also not providing the option to verify ID with a Video call. I am an Indian nationalist. Kindly help me in verifying my ID that I can earn a verified badge. I have government ID proof with photo.
