WIC Electronic Benefits Transfer (Coming April 2018)
WIC Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) is an electronic system that replaces paper vouchers with a card for food benefit issuance and redemption at authorized WIC grocery stores.
- The safe and easy way for you to buy your WIC foods.
- Your family’s WIC food benefits will be automatically deposited until your next WIC visit.
- You will use your WIC Card to purchase your WIC food benefits at WIC stores that display the WIC Accepted Here Sign.
- EBT does not change the amount of WIC food benefits you receive; it just makes getting them easier and safer. And, you do not have to purchase all of your benefits at one time.
