Do You Qualify for WIC?

To see if you may qualify, you must:

  • Meet income guidelines;
  • Be a resident of Alabama; and
  • Be seen by a health professional at the WIC clinic.

  • Person applying for WIC (You, Infant, Child(ren)).
  • Proof of identification for parent/caretaker AND person applying for WIC (a driver's license, birth certificate, hospital birth card).
  • Proof of residence (a document with your street address on it, such as a lease or bill).
  • Proof of enrollment in Medicaid, SNAP or Family Assistance or Proof of current household income. Proof of income must include documentation of income for everyone that is working in the household during the past 30 days i.e. weekly pay (4 paycheck stubs), bi-weekly (2 paycheck stubs), monthly (1 paycheck stub).

At the appointment, once the above is documented, you will be evaluated for nutritional risk. Nutritional risk is one of the main qualifying factors in determining benefit eligibility for pregnant, postpartum, or breastfeeding women, infants and children under five.
