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.
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.
Hello, i'm facing verification problem i'm uploading my id card it's verified but when i talk with agent for video verification she not listen clearly my voice i don't know why but now my id card also pending and when i try again to upload message shown facing some techincal problem try later i try last two days but still same issue face. can anyone help me how to i reslove this? Thanks!
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.
