Hi Eric, 

Do you mean your sibling will be hiring you?

 Why in the world would your sibling need hire you on Upwork (for any honest, genuine reason, rather than for the purpose of boosting your profile / gaining feedback etc?)

 

Don't even think about it. If your sibling wants to hire you, tell them to hire and pay you directly.

 As your sibling is not an upwork client yet, you are allowed to work with them outside of upwork, and I suggest payment by bank transfer which will cost you absolutely nothing, and your sibling does not have to pay the credit card fee. Great solution, eh?

 Or his sibling could just hand over cash and be done with it, without the danger of suspended accounts and accusations of cheating...

 That is assuming they talk. I was working under worst case assumption.

Not a bad solution.

It is not Upwork's intention that you hire family members, or get hired by family members. Or close friends/neighbors. This could easily lead to account suspension, termination.
