Upwork have been testing shorter security holds for a while now, to see if it can be shortened all around or at least for certain types of contracts.
Don't get used to it, it seems to affect accounts for short periods before returning to "normal"
I just came to community discussions to ask the same question. I noticed the same thing, my funds arrived 4 days earlier than the actual date. Well, they should do it in a long run. It's good for us!

Same thing with me. But can we not withdraw these funds?Is there any issue if we withdraw the funds? Anyone know about it and can guide me?
If the funds are available you can withdraw them. Just don't get used to / start relying on them coming early as it won't last.....
I got a payment quicker last night also. I withdrew it to Paypal and it still hasn't shown up. I know sometimes it can take some time, but I just find it odd because they have ALWAYS come through in a matter of minutes. I'm not sure if it's related or not.
