I recently made an upwork account and registered my name as**Edited for community guidelines**

. Then I wanted to add PayPal as my method of payment and because my PayPal name is t’keyah

**Edited for community guidelines**. Upwork has deactivated my method of payment.**Edited for community guidelines**is my middle name. I decided to change my name on upwork to include

**Edited for community guidelines**so the two names will be the same. But they said it will be reviewed. Will upwork suspend my account because of this?

Hi T’keyah,


I checked and it looks like the name change request has already been approved. If in case our team needs more information from you, they will reach out to you directly. You just need to make sure that you complete your W-8BEN Form. The Form W-8BEN is a form used to confirm you’re not a U.S. taxpayer and that Upwork is not required to withhold taxes from your earnings. Please complete the form by following the steps below:


  • Go Settings  Tax Information
  • Provide us with your legal name and address
