what does the IRS WMR website say?

https://www.irs.gov/refunds 

it's unclear as to whether you filed an amended return or the IRS just changed it.

for the amended return status -

https://www.irs.gov/filing/wheres-my-amended-return 

to review a transcript of the return to see the changes were made if you did not amend 

https://www.irs.gov/individuals/get-transcript 

 

for other than direct deposit, if the website shows that your refund has been released but it's been more than a couple of weeks and you haven't received it you'll need to institute a refund trace. for direct deposit, if either the routing or account number are bad it could be months before you get the check in the mail. it's mailed to the address on the return so if you moved it will take longer.

Even during “normal” times it takes about four months for the IRS to process an amended return.  During the pandemic and due to the severe backlog at the IRS it is taking much longer—six to nine  months or more for many amended returns.  Do not expect quick results from amending.  When the IRS issues a refund for an amended return it will be by check.  They do not make direct deposits for refunds for amended returns.  You can watch for information here:

Check your Account Transcript in the IRS Online Account.  It should show the date the amended return was filed, the date the account was adjusted (i.e. when the amended return was processed) and the refund amounts and dates.  If you see everything there, maybe your dealing with a "check got lost in the mail" scenario.
