WIC question

When I first got pregnant I tried to get WIC and just missed the income cut off (by like $50). Well now that I'm not working and I'm out of sick time I won't be getting anymore paychecks. I'm thinking of trying again to get it. My question is I have a supplemental disability policy that I have paid into for a few years now that I am collecting on. It's not the state disability provided by my employer but something extra. Do you think this counts as income? It's not taxed by the government and I don't have to claim it next year when I my taxes.
I know I can call and set up an appointment but I don't want to waste my time going down there if this is income. It's impossible to get a person on the phone to answer questions

I have no idea. It does make sense though, that your supplemental would not count as income. I just have no experience with this. Sorry.

If that is your only income, you will probably still be able to get WIC.  Where I am, as long as your income is low enough for Medicaid, you qualify for WIC.  They don't even ask for financial info if you receive Medicaid.  Not sure about your situation, but I would just ask them about it.  The people who run it here are pretty nice.

Is your policy something like Aflac? If so it counts as income albeit non taxable.
