What happens at my first appointment and what should I bring?

Medium

At your first WIC appointment, WIC staff will check to see if you or your child is eligible for WIC.clipboard

They will:

  • Look at your proof of income for your household.
  • Ask a few questions about your family’s health and nutrition.
  • Weigh, measure and check iron status for you and/or your child.

When you set up your appointment, the WIC staff will tell you to be sure to bring your infant or child with you and other information including:

  • Proof of identification for each applicant: Crib card (for infants), immunization records (infants and children), drivers license (women) or other photo ID from school or work, passport, social service benefits card or birth certificate.
  • Proof of where you live with your name, street address, city, state, and zip code: drivers’ license or other state ID, social services letter (Medicaid, SNAP, TANF) with current address, electrical/utility/cable bill, rental agreement or paychecks. 
  • Proof of income for everyone in the household. Household means members of a family/house­hold who live together and share expenses. Bring all sources of income such as Medicaid card, SNAP or TANF award letter, verification form from Head Start/Early Head Start, paychecks, income tax forms (if self-employed), or Social Security benefits.
  • Proof of immunization (shot records for infants/children up to age 2).

WIC does not require proof of citizenship or alien status.
