  • They'll tell you online or if you call. It's probably your kids' ss numbers as well as yours.

  • it says this:

    you will be evaluated for a nutritional risk which is the other main qualifying factor in determining benefit eligibility for pregnant, postpartum, breastfeeding women, infants and children under 5.


    does that mean that i (pregnant) and my 3 y/o will have to be seen by sone hole in the wall doctor?

  • You can't say you husband doesn't work. You can have more income for WIC than you can for other programs like food stamps. Go to google.com and type in WIC income guidelines and your state's name. You will find all the info you need. You also have to have a nutritional or health reason for WIC.

    In my state a family of four can have an income of over $3000 and still get WIC. If you breastfeed the mom gets food for a year, or until she weans.
