What Do I Need To Do To Stay On WIC?

 

During your visits, you will meet with a health professional who will share suggestions and ideas about healthy eating for you and your children. At other times, you may join with other WIC participants for a nutrition or health class.

 

At some of your visits, the WIC staff will check to see if you or your child is still eligible. This is called a certification. You will need to bring:

      Proof of identification
      Proof of your income
      Proof of your address

 

How Long Can I Stay On WIC?

 

If you meet the income and health or nutrition guidelines, you can stay on WIC:

 

During pregnancy or breast-feeding until one year after your baby is born. If not breast-feeding, until six months after your baby is born or your pregnancy ended.

 

For infants and children: Until your child's nutrition problem has improved or until your child reaches his or her fifth birthday, whichever comes first.
