Name Changes

Hey! I'm a non-binary freelancer. I go by a name (professionally and socially) that is different than my legal name. Is it possible to change my first name displayed in Upwork, while still complying with the "name must match bank account" rule?

hi dear, you can't change your name because Upwork allows you to show your original name who's on your ID Card. No other name like nick or social name.

Hi Cas,


You can update your name by going to Settings and using the edit button. If your name variation is not acceptable, our agent will advise you directly and will suggest editing your Upwork profile name to match your bank or payment account name.


Thank you!
