Hi Jersey81164 -

 

You can go to IRS.gov and check out your refund status with their "Where's My Refund" tool. Even though it states the IRS accepted and approved your return, that does not necessarily mean they have processed it yet.

Re: refund

On Myaccount, you should have a date range for receipt of your refund if you have a RAC--that is also known as 'deduct my fees' or 'pay nothing out of pocket.'

 

The Emerald Card is directly deposited to by H&R Block Bank after the  receipt of the refund, so it is funded much more quickly than a paper check. The Emerald Card may fund a little quicker than some direct deposit accounts with a RAC, because the fewer banks you talk to, the fewer people have to approve the release of funds.
