Yes, in addition to being Top Rated, the freelancer will need to also meet the following criteria to earn Top Rated Plus status:
Earned more than $10,000 in total earnings (all contracts included) the past 12 months
Worked on one of more large* projects in the past 12 months without negative feedback
Are not an exclusive agency contractor
Maintained Top Rated status
Thank you, Valeria! Just one more question: is the badge assigned automatically when the requirements are met or, in case, will I have to request it or ask to check if my profile is suitable?
I had a question and i wanted some guidance over it.
I have 100% JSS, 6 out of 16 Top Rated Eligible Weeks, One $5000+ long contract in my category with a great and 5 star review ( Engineering) , now have $9k+ earning and will surely have $10k+ in upcoming weeks as i have on going contract.
I know i will get the Top Rated Badge when after min 13 out of 16 eligible weeks, but i also have completed the requirement for the Top Rated Plus badge, when i get Top Rated after how much time i will get to the Top Rated Plus because i have already completed the crieteria for that, will i have to wait for another 13 weeks after Top Rated or it will relflect the Top Rated Plus status after few weeks (because no discussion guides us about the mantainig the Top Rated badge duration to get to Top Rated Plus) ?
Thanks for your answers.

I've read somewhere that as long as you receive payments on an ongoing long term contract, they count towards the JSS score.. If you want to get feedback on that contract, ask your client nicely to end the contract and leave feedback for you, then propose a new contract yourself (we can do that for some time).
