Is it possible for my Tax Refund Check to arrive earlier before DD?

Good morning,

My dad filed his taxes on 02/12/2021 and received both his State and Federal on Monday, 03/01/2021. I checked his IRS Refund status and it said that his return was received. It was still on the first bar.

I filed mine on 02/14/2021 and was given my mail check date on 02/26/2021. It is set to be mailed out on Thursday, 03/04/2021. 

Is it possible it has already been mailed since last week since my dad got his pretty quickly?


NOTE: I do not have a Bank Account lol so I could not ask for direct deposit. Stupid, I know.

    Where's my refund said "return received" last Tuesday. On Thursday the money was in my bank account. You can't trust their website, it's not very accurate.

    Anything is possible. Why didn't you ask for direct deposit?  I think the last time I got a refund, not last year, I got an email telling me it was coming and then of course it got there.  When I owe, they pull it from my bank account on 4/15. The last day. No need to pay sooner.

    Yes it's possible.

    But you won't know for sure until it arrives so don't plan on it.
