You need to bring the following information to the WIC appointment:
Identification such as a driver's license
Birth Certificate, crib card or hospital discharge papers for infants
Proof of address, such as rent receipt, utility bills, etc.
Proof of household income, such as pay stubs, a TANF or SNAP eligibility letter or Medicaid card
Proof of pregnancy from a doctor, health department or Family Planning Clinic
Immunization records for infants and children
eWIC cardholder, if available
A dry diaper may also be helpful
This information is reviewed, along with the participant's health history. A health screening is performed on each participant. From there, information is entered on growth charts, and evaluated individually to determine WIC eligibility. Participants are then counseled by a health professional. Eating habits are discussed and food histories are evaluated. At that time, participants are informed of their eligibility and WIC program responsibilities.
You should expect to spend about an hour for each appointment. Many clinics offer evening hours for your convenience.
