eWIC Statewide Implementation  Complete!

The New York State WIC Program is changing to an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) system for the redemption of WIC benefits.

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) ordered all states to start the new system by October 1, 2020. The system will be called eWIC. An eWIC card will replace paper checks and allow for faster purchases and improved customer service. eWIC will have positive benefits for both WIC participants and vendors.
