You need to talk to them. They can fund an entire milestone. You need to talk to them and decide for yourself.
Another one that does it this way was Adobe, but again I always got paid. You gotta decide.

Yes it is an enterprise client.
They have created a third milestone, and explained to me that they understand my concern but unfortunately the upwork system is such that it does not allow to have several active milestones at once.
Well, they would have to release one and then fund the next, release, then fund the next etc...
That said, Enterprise clients are generally safe bets. If they have the history and you like the work, take a calculated risk
