Hi,

 

Just to clarify - if I didn't withdraw my proposal and the client didn't do anything about it after 30 days, will my Connects be automatically returned/refunded? Thanks!

No, not unless the project was marked with a blue dot when you applied. Upwork had been conducting a test in which they returned connects on some projects if 30 days expired without the client hiring anyone, but that has ended now.

Hi Kimberly Jo,

 

A job expires after 30 days of inactivity but clients are still able to review proposals and hire freelancers after the mentioned time frame. The connects will only be refunded if the job is closed by the client or by Upwork without a hire and won't be refunded if it expires. Please see this article for more information.

 

Thank you!
