It DOES NOT MATTER if the client disappears.

 

When I submit my work using the "Submit Work and Request Payment" button, then I get paid AUTOMATICALLY if the client has disappeared.

 

If there is a funded milestone, you will get paid automatically if you submit, just like me.

 

If you are saying that the client never funded the last milestone, then there is nothing you can do. You won't get paid for that. Learn from your mistake, and do not make the same mistake in the future.

 

In the future: Do not work on unfunded milestones.
