Identity Verification

I have been asked to verify my identity by October 15. Does the verification process require from all Upwork freelancers or only those who don't pay monthly membership?

Hi Sheena-Kay, 

I checked your account and can see that you are being requested to complete the verification for the ID Verification Badge. Please know that verification processes are not meant to discriminate users who are not a paid membership, as all users on the platform will be required to go through certain verification processes. This is to ensure the security of the marketplace.


As noted on this announcement thread, please know that all earning freelancers will be required to go thorugh this verification process. If you have further questions, please let me know so that I can assist you further.
