Renewing Your WIC Account

Once per year, you will have a recertification appointment to renew your child’s WIC eligibility. If your appointment is in person at a WIC office, please bring your child(ren) with you and their most recent vaccination history. If you cannot bring your child, please bring their recent medical records with height, weight, and anemia test results.

During your appointment, we will:

  • Confirm your family income or child’s Medi-Cal status
  • Talk about your child’s growth and nutrition
  • Connect you with other community resources
  • Load more food benefits onto your WIC card

WIC counselors are here to educate and empower you to build a healthy future for your family. We encourage you to ask questions and bring up any challenges you are facing. We will do our best to help or connect you with someone who can.

If you need to replace your WIC card, let your WIC counselor know. We are happy to replace it.

Please prepare these documents for your appointment

To reassess your eligibility, please provide the following items listed below. If your appointment is by phone, we will text you a link to upload photos of your documents.

Examples include:

  • Active Medi-Cal numbers
  • Paystub or statement from the last 30 days
  • Disability pay
  • Unemployment benefits
  • Social security benefits
  • Other

If you do not have an income or Medi-Cal, tell your WIC counselor at your appointment.

If you have moved, please provide one of the following items that shows your current address and full name:

  • Active Medi-Cal numbers
  • Any mail
  • Any bill
  • Driver's license or ID
  • Bank statement
  • Car registration/insurance
  • Other

If you do not have proof of residency or Medi-Cal, tell your WIC counselor at your appointment.

Weight, height, and anemia test results

Please provide any height, weight, and anemia test results within the last 60 days. If you are unable to provide this information, request one from your healthcare provider at your next visit. The document can be an official form or aftercare summary visit and must include:

  • First and last name
  • Date of birth
  • Weight, height, and/or anemia test results
  • Date the results were taken
  • Healthcare provider's name and/or signature

If you do not have recent height, weight, or anemia test result documents from your child(ren)'s healthcare provider, tell your WIC counselor at your appointment.

Immunization Record

Please provide your child's immunization record (yellow card) or an electronic vaccine record. Your child's electronic vaccine record may be obtained here . The digital vaccine record will include your child's vaccination dates and future vaccine recommendations.

What if I don’t have a document?

After we complete your enrollment, you will have 30 days to provide any missing proof of income or address. Tell your WIC counselor during your appointment if you cannot provide a document. WIC will generally accept a sworn statement as a last resort.
