Look what’s new!
Connecticut WIC has added two new features in WICShopper that will make WIC shopping and tracking your WIC appointments MUCH easier! You will now be able to check your remaining WIC benefit balance and see when and where your upcoming appointments are! Keep reading to see how to access the new features:
Note: Some users may see the text <UNKOWN> when checking benefits. If you see this, please uninstall and reinstall WICShopper to resolve the issue.
Checking your WIC benefits balance
First, tap the new “My Benefits” button in the upper right corner of the main screen:
You will be prompted to enter your 16 digit eWIC card number:
After registering your card, you will be able to view your remaining benefits by tapping the “My Benefits” button. When scanning products, the app will tell you if the product is WIC eligible AND if you have the benefits to purchase the product.
Important note: The benefits you see are delayed by up to a day. Be sure to check the top of your benefits screen to see when the benefits were uploaded to WICShopper (usually it will be 3:30pm of the prior day).
Connecticut WIC now makes it easy to keep track of your upcoming WIC appointments. Just tap the new ‘My Appointments‘ button to see the details of your next appointment. You will see who the appointment is for and what to bring to the appointment.
If WICShopper isn’t showing any upcoming appointments, please use the “Find a WIC Office” button the app to contact your clinic and schedule one!
If you have allowed WICShopper notifications, we will also give you a reminder 7 days ahead of your appointment. Want to turn off notifications or be notified more or less than 7 days prior to your appointment? Tap the 3 bars in the upper corner on the main screen and go to Settings. From there you can change when you are notified.
