what do i need to apply for WIC

i'm on medicaid and i have been for this entire pregnancy (i'm 37 weeks) my 2yo has it, too. we haven't had wic this whole time, but now we actually need the help. i have an appointment wednesday to apply, and i don't know what all i need to bring. i have my medicaid card, my 2yo's card, a check stub from my husband's work, and 'proof' that i'm pregnant with my due date on it...what else do i need?

  • You don't need proof of income if you have Medicaid (at least you don't in my state). You do still need ID for yourself and your toddler (driver's license, social security card will work). And the proof of pregnancy for yourself. That should be it, but you might want to check just to be sure. They'll probably have the information on-line on the website for your state's health department, or you can call and ask.

  • Im pretty sure as long as u have medicaid u automatically qualify for wic. Your best bet is to contact the wic office to make sure.

  • check online, it should have a list of what you are supposed to bring with you. when we were on wic a few years ago i had to have: proof of pregnancy (after she was born SS card/number), proof of income, proof of address and id

  • Do not forget two forms of id for youself as well as prove of residency but basically if u have medicaid, then that is really all u need... well at least that is how they are where i live
