Re: Working on Upwork as a minor

Recently, I've finished my first job on Upwork and am waiting on approval from my client so that I can get paid. However, to access my earnings, I need to complete the W9 form. I'm not sure what to fill it out with. As a minor, is there anything I should know?

How old are you? You have to be 18 to work on the site.

In addition to being too young to work here, do you even have a valid job?  Your profile doesn't show any jobs in progress.

I have a completed assignment waiting for approval. If I get a guardian to fill the form for me, is that okay?

Really? I was told that minors could work on this site.

Whoever told you that was incorrect.

Her profile even says she's 14.  SMH.  How did that get approved?

Judging by the profiles that I've seen recently, Upwork isn't turning anyone down at the moment.
