  • She didn't keep appointments or give them proof.

  • Wic is a separate program from food stamps and I think you can lose it by not making the appointments, or rescheduling for more than 3 times for the same appointment. Also you can only get it for a certain amount of time, until the child is like, 5 years of age. Not sure on the exact age there but it's fairly young.

  • She didn't go to the meetings they have or she didn't provide info? IDK, it is pretty hard to do something that would make you lose WIC.

  • If her child is over the age of 5 she is automatically taken off. Also if she continues to not bring in the paperwork they ask for

  • her kids could be over 5,
    or didn't make her appointment.

  • If she is still on Section 8, and still receiveing food stamps, then she would still qualify for WIC, she had to have done something to lose it....the only reason I can think of is she didn't keep her appointments.
