Why upwork doesn't allow me to keep more than $1k

Why upwork doesn't allow me to keep more than $1k, If I want to set, get paid only when the balance is more than $5k, then I should be able to set it that way?

You can control this setting.

But Upwork is not a bank.

So there are some limitations on how long you can keep money in your Upwork account.

You can, up to 3 months, 6 if you know what you're doing. You can't longer than 6 months because Upwork isn't a bank.

You can, just not for over 6 months.
