Verified badge

Hi, my name on my Upwork profile is my Maiden name and my bank account linked is also still my Maiden name.

I am married and all my govt IDs are updated with my married name.

I want to have my upwork account verified. (I think I have read that verification is not later than July 28? I am not sure)

Which one will I do first that will consume me less time to process? Changing my name on upwork first or update my bank account first?

Or can I verify my account using my Maiden name instead? I cant afford not withdrawing funds every week because of my expenses weekly.

Hi Riri,

Thank you for reaching out with my concern. One last question? Is there a validity time frame regarding my invitation for the verified badge? I am planning to process all of it by next month.

Kind regards,
