eWIC Implementation

The North Carolina WIC Program is moving from a paper-based method of WIC benefit issuance to an electronic benefit transfer system (eWIC). We will be piloting eWIC from October 4, 2017 to December 31, 2017. The pilot region includes the following counties: Bladen, Brunswick, Columbus, Duplin, New Hanover, Onslow, and Pender. After the pilot period, there are ten rollout weeks scheduled from January 22, 2018 through May 11, 2018. During this time eWIC will be rolled out to the remainder of the counties in the state. Please see the memo below for more details regarding the transition to eWIC.

If you have questions regarding eWIC implementation, email the WIC Vendor Unit.
