November 27, 2018

KANSAS CITY, Mo., Nov. 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The promotional period for H&R Block Emerald Advance® line of credit launched nationally for consumers to apply at any participating H&R Block tax office. Approved applicants are eligible for an unsecured credit limit between $350 and $1,000.

“Over the last 13 years, the Emerald Advance has been a resource for consumers so that whatever is happening in your life, you can get up to $1,000 today with no W-2 required to apply,” said Greg Steinlicht, vice president of tax and financial products with H&R Block.

How to apply for Emerald Advance line of credit

The Emerald Advance™ is originated by Axos BankTM. Upon application, the bank will determine approval based on standard underwriting criteria. Since draws from the Emerald Advance are loaded to the consumer’s H&R Block Emerald Prepaid Mastercard® account, approved applicants typically leave the office with the first draw already loaded and ready to spend as they see fit.

To apply for the Emerald Advance, clients must bring a current earnings statement (e.g., paystub), valid, unexpired government-issued photo identification (e.g., a driver’s license) and their Emerald Card if they have one, to a participating H&R Block tax office.

“Whether it is to plan for end-of-year expenses, holidays, or other financial needs that pop up throughout the year, the Emerald Advance provides consumers an option for money now,” says Steinlicht.

For additional details, visit the Emerald Advance website. Consumers wishing to make an appointment to apply or just locate a participating office can find an H&R Block location near them online or by calling 800-HRBLOCK.
