I have experienced the same problem with both freelance writer and freelance crafter careers (Tina Tinker and Yasemin Tinker).

All tasks were completed, requested items (book/candles) were sent to client, and "Approved" notifications showed up. However, gig stayed in career tab even after deadline has passed without any payment. I checked and my money level did not change.

Neither sim are pregnant (since I think HCSau said her sim started having issues after pregnancy?).

This occurred during both sims first gig that I have played.


Screenshots attached.

Freelancer Career Broken. Gigs don't finish even when all tasks are done.

★★★ Newbie

Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number?
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Discover University, Get Famous, Seasons and City Living
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? I'm not sure.
What happens when the bug occurs? Nothing, that's the issue. In the Freelancer Job, the gigs don't finish even when all tasks are done.
What do you expect to see? I expect the gig to be finished when all tasks are done and my sims to then be able to advance in the Freelancer career.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

I get my sims to join the Freelancer trade, they complete a gig, but nothing happens. All boxes are ticked and they don't get paid and if the time runs out for the gig to be complete it's like they didn't finish it on time. It happens for all trades, for any sims, and I even uninstalled the whole game and all packs and reinstalled them and it still happens.

In case anyone is looking for the mod to fix this, I think this one should work!

Haven't tried it myself yet.

I too have been having an issue with the freelancer artist jobs not completed and payment received. I have played this type of freelancer career before and have had no issues with this, or other freelancer careers until today. Definitely bugged. I tried one job, waited and waited for it to pay me. Tried dropping the job and picked up another gig, and same thing after completing the requirements.

Just got quite a few packs recently, removed all mods and started a new play through. Decided to try the photography freelance but my first one was all complete but nothing happened. Before reading this I thought it might have been mod files leftover so I uninstalled the game, delete all Sims 4 folders and am reinstalling now. Judging from previous comments it's just a bug so kind of a waste of time to reinstall :/

I've got it too.  Played on two different families one was a programmer and the other an artist.  All requirements complete, no payout and no recognition of completion.  I have to delete the job in order to end it.  Two families in Strangerville.  Have all packs including Journey to Batuu.  Not sure it matters, but I have the freezing bug since Batuu and the scanner glitch since then too.  Already logged them elsewhere.  Thank you for your help.

I'm having this exact same issue. I've tried two different freelancer types, artist and writer, but the gigs are not paying out.
