I have this message on my page when I try to post bids:

"You've reached the maximum number of tries to upload your ID.
To verify your identity so that you can access all jobs, please contact customer support."

THe issue is that my ID was verified succesfully a week ago and my profile shows it. THe request came up after some agency proposed me work on upwork and requested verification. Looks like it is a bug in the system the "client" tried to exploit

I need to verify my ID. I've requested through Support, but it says I will get an email, and I have not received it to complete the Video Chat verification. Help!

I just started on Upwork. I started the ID verification process but there's an issue with my current drivers' license. I was married in August of 2019. Between finishing up two degrees at once and then Covid, I never had a chance to change my license. I changed my name with my school though so my degrees have my married name on them. We moved in December last year and, because of the cost and the DMV being closed down (now open but still cost issues) I still haven't been able to change my ID. I have my marriage certificate and a notarized affidavit from the homeowner proving my residency. We live with family so there's no lease. My bank accounts were changed to my married name as well. So my cards have that name, but not my social security number. So when I uploaded my license to Upwork ID verification, it has the wrong name AND the wrong address on it. But there's not space to add additional documents. I called and found my way to the human resources dept and I left a message. I don't know if there's anything else I can do, though.

Hello

 

I am not able to view US Only jobs and apply to them. I don't know why this is happening as I am based in the US, and have active contracts and completed jobs from the US. Can you please fix the bug?

 

Thanks!

Hello, I'm new to the platform and cannot submit any proposals. The system keeps rejecting my ID stating my name doesn't match, which it does! I've submitted an email two days ago but have received no response. There is still an error message at the top of my screen saying I have exceeded the number of attempts to upload verification of my identity and to contact customer support. Does support exist?
