The advance will be loaded onto your card upon advance approval. You'll receive the remaining refund amount on the same card, so there’s no need to return to your tax professional’s office to pick up a check.
Because the card is offered in your tax professional’s office it will be a generic card, but a personalized card will be mailed to qualified taxpayers.
If you filed a joint return a personalized card will be printed in the name of the primary taxpayer and mailed to your residence if you qualify for a personalized card. The secondary taxpayer can request a second personalized card through the Green Dot website once the initial card has been received.*
