Hello There,

 

Recently, I have changed my Legal name in India. My First name is changed from 'Nirmal' to 'Marmik'.

 

Also, my Government IDs and Bank account also have this change. so, with the old name, I won't be able to withdraw any payments. 

 

So, Can I change my First name on my Upwork profile and update the bank account details? Will that make any issue on my profile? and what will be the verification process for the same?

 

Looking forward to suggestions.

Thanks, Goran for your response.

 

I would like someone from the Upwork team to review this before I make any changes. If someone can review this change for me and confirm whether it will make any issues or not. I just don't want to lose this account for any such reasons. 

 

Is that possible?
