Citizenship validation

Greetings,

 

According to DHS...government is using I9 and e-verify to validate. Why not use this method of validation for Upwork freelancers? 

 

It bothers when in 2017 anyone can would make a claim that their servers and data curation is 100% secure. There's not such thing,

Maybe Upwork can offer I-9 as an alternative then. But for many US freelancers, giving Upwork bank account info is a no-brainer because Upwork already has bank account info for the purposes of withdrawing payment.

Hi Barbara, 


We just announced today that we're replacing the bank account verification process with a new, simpler method for freelancers in the U.S. to verify their location in real-time, using a current state-issued ID. You may read more about it here.
