Using your WIC Card in stores

WIC transactions are as fast and easy as making a purchase with a debit or credit card.

With the WIC Card, you will be able to shop at your convenience. The card does not change the amount of WIC food benefits you receive. Getting your benefits will be faster, easier, and more convenient.

  • Swipe your WIC Card the same way that you would with a debit or credit card.
  • Your WIC nutritionist will help you select your food package every 1-3 months. Each month, your family's WIC food benefits will be deposited onto your card.
  • Eligible food items you buy will subtract from your benefits total. You don’t need to use all your benefits at one time. You will be able to buy only the foods that you need, when you need them.
