Connecticut WIC Program completed statewide implementation of the eWIC process June 2016.
For the participants, the
new eWIC card offers the following:
A safer, easier and more convenient way for participants to shop for food.
All members of the same household on WIC have their benefits on one card.
Similar to a debit/credit card with a magnetic strip.
Reduction in errors in choosing WIC approved foods.
The family can buy their foods when they need them.
The cash register/EBT system checks the participant's available food prescription balance right then.
At the local WIC office, the eWIC process
provides easier and faster service:
The same card is used at each appointment.
More time talking about the family’s health.
The new food package is automatically added to the eWIC card.
Retailers, the change to eWIC:
Reduces the amount of time that is spent on a WIC sale per family.
Improves processing of WIC benefits, customer service and reduces confusion on which foods items are authorized for purchase.
