The Connecticut WIC Program will not be offering open enrollment for new vendors in January 2016 due to the implementation of a new statewide Management Information System (MIS) and the conversion from checks to an eWIC card.

Beginning in February, the Program will start to issue WIC benefits on an eWIC card and paper WIC checks will be phased out.  At the time of rollout, we are anticipating that all authorized WIC vendors will already have their contracts in place with Xerox and that their stores are ready to accept eWIC cards.  Rollout of eWIC will continue throughout Connecticut until June 2016. 

The next open enrollment for vendors will be January 2017 and the information will be posted here.

Note: WIC vendor authorization cannot be transferred from one owner to another. A new application must be submitted.

 

Any store interested in becoming an authorized WIC vendor must apply during an enrollment period. Only vendors that are authorized as WIC vendors by the State of Connecticut WIC Program may redeem Connecticut WIC benefits. 


Thank you for your interest in the Connecticut WIC Program.
