Is anyone else still waiting on their refund that did identity verification?

Ok so here's how it started for me 

F/A 2/3
3/5 received my first letter asking for my w2s
3/8 they received the letter was told 6-9 week wait
4/16 received a 4883c letter had to id verify
Verified the same day at 4:30pm
4/17 checked wmr no update
4/18 checked wmr no update
4/19 checked wmr no update 
4/19 checked wmr later in the day around 5:30 it updated from still being processed to being processed 
4/20 checked wmr updated to approved
DDD 4/24

I hope this helps everyone and good luck

Ps I was under review because my refund amount was larger this year due to the new eic and aic laws

What Happens After I Finish the Verification Process?

If the verification proves you are the person named on the return and that you personally filed the return, the return will be processed. After successful verification, it takes about 6 weeks to complete processing.

Ok so we're right around the same time then.  I called the tax payer advocates and made a case.  They said someone should call me on or before March 12th.  If you have a reason for economic hardship, they will contact the IRS to get your refund pushed through faster.  It's worth a shot.  I'll keep you informed.  They told me that my account said "If no refund received within 8 weeks, advise tax payer to refile with all forms and W-2s"... Umm what?!?!? I'm not waiting 8 weeks to find out.
