  • No. Not every one. I only remember doing it twice. once when I first applied, and then when i moved to a new state when ds was 6 mo old I had to reapply there. I was only on a year though. Maybe you do it every so often?

  • I'm on my 3rd round of WIC checks, and only had to prove my income at my first appointment. I would think it's the same everywhere, but if you're not sure, just call your local health dept, or wherever they do WIC in your area.

  • Only the first time, then I don't think they check that until after the baby comes. It's really not very often, and even if you did the limit is pretty high... and it's free food!

  • You have to show your proof of income every few months AND if you are adding a new baby. I THINK they check mine every 6 months? I'm not 100%, but it's not only once.

  • I know that if you are already approved for food stamps you automatically are able to get it. I think you dont have to show them if you are getting welfare but I may be wrong!
