Something went wrong

I wrote the wrong date of birth on my account.

Also I wrote my first name and last name on my account.

I missed my second name.

But upwork requires full name?

I have a different date of birth on my ID card. I need to change my Date of birth

Also I have a different name on my ID card. I need to change my Name.

Hi Wilfredo,


Thank you for reaching out to us. I checked and can confirm that we are not able to edit your date of birth. Could you please let us know where you asked to add your date of birth? 


However, you can edit your name. Could you please go to Settings › Contact Info to edit your name? You can find more information in this help article


Your verified name in Upwork must match the name on your payment account.

There was an error in my date of birth during registration on Upwork. I have searched for where I could modify it on the portal but to no avail. Please, how do I go about it? Though the date birth on my tax form is correct. I am new and my account is yet to be verified.

Hi Oliver,


As Nikola mentioned in his post above, the date of birth you entered upon registration can't be updated. However,  you can always update your date of birth on your Tax Information page if necessary.
