  • Go tell them I think. But if you still qualify there is no shame in getting WIC. Atleast I don't think so.

  • When I was done with WIC, I just stopped reporting to them and stopped going to pick up my coupons. They never called or questioned. But I was just sick of dealing with it, didn't have an income change :)

  • Call them and tell them the change in finances. You might still qualify if you want to continue getting assistance.

  • Just tell them you don't need and don't want them... They will have you sign some "opt out" paperwork, but beyond that, I don't see why they need more than that...

  • just call and let them know about the new job. Don't just cancel though, you may still qualify so just update your info with them!

  • The income guidelines are higher then for other programs. Like others said, you may still qualify. You're not required to report he got a job immediately. Whenever your next re-certification is, you take income verification (think they need at least a month's worth of check stubs) & then they will let you know if you still qualify. The vouchers you already have are still yours to use, they wont "cancel" them out on you.

  • Just call the office and tell them you're opting to not participate in the program anymore as your DH got a job. Or just stop going - if you don't go you don't get the checks, they don't worry about it.
