WIC Eligible Food List
eWIC: Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT)
Shoppers can buy as much WIC food as they want at a time. eWIC will keep track of each month’s food allotment.
We can reload the benefits card without the participant having to make a trip to the clinic.
We can get more helpful information about WIC purchases.
Store employees won’t have to determine whether a food is Colorado WIC eligible. The electronic system will know.
Works just like a debit card
Each WIC family will get one eWIC card. At checkout, the WIC shopper will swipe the card, just like a debit or credit card, and enter a personal identification number (PIN). WIC will pay for the allowable foods and deduct them from the family’s WIC account.
The family’s food benefits will be added together. For example, a pregnant woman and her 3-year-old receive a total of 72 ounces of cereal, 36 ounces for each. If the mom purchases 12 ounces of cereal, her store receipt will show a balance of 60 ounces of cereal remaining.
The family will get a monthly report for the total amount of each WIC food benefit
