How To Request A New WIC Card

If you’ve lost or damaged your WIC card, you can request a new one. First, call your local WIC office. They’ll need your name, address, and date of birth to verify your identity. Once your identity has been confirmed, the WIC office will mail you a new card. It’s important to keep your WIC card safe. If you lose or damage it again, you’ll need to go through the same process to get a new one.

    Visiting the Issuer’s Branch

    To request a new WIC card, you will need to visit the issuer’s branch in person. You can find the location of the issuer’s branch by calling the WIC office in your county or by visiting the WIC website.

    • Bring your valid identification card (e.g., driver’s license, state ID card)
    • Bring proof of residency (e.g., utility bill, lease agreement)
    • Bring proof of income (e.g., pay stub, tax return)
    • Bring proof of pregnancy or breastfeeding (e.g., doctor’s note, birth certificate)
    • Bring your current WIC card (if you have one)

    When you arrive at the issuer’s branch, you will need to complete a WIC application. The application will ask for your personal information, household income, and other information about your family.

    Once you have completed the application, you will need to submit it to the WIC staff. The WIC staff will review your application and determine if you are eligible for WIC benefits.

    If you are eligible for WIC benefits, the WIC staff will issue you a new WIC card. The WIC card will be used to purchase WIC-approved foods at authorized grocery stores.
