The New eWIC

The information contained in this video about the eWIC card is intended for the Southeast region only. For other regions across the state, it can be viewed as a preview of what will be coming soon!

Please take note of the
eWIC Rollout Schedule, below.


 

What is eWIC?


Our WIC program is moving from checks to an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card we're calling "eWIC." The new eWIC card looks like a debit card and has all of your family’s WIC benefits in one place.
  • It's Fast
    Saves time at checkout!
  • It's Flexible
    Buy as little or as much of your WIC food at a time!
  • It's Simple
    No more paper checks!
