Legal Guardianship in Oregon

Does anyone know if you automatically qualify for WIC or other state programs when you take legal guardianship over a small child?? Thank you!

  • No you do not automatically qualify just because you take guardianship of a child.. You still must meet the income guidelines in order to qualify..

    If you have guardianship and meet the guidelines, yes you can apply for and receive benies from state programs.

  • As a foster parent, we were automatically given WIC and Oregon Health Plan for them. But guardianship could be totally different???
