If you believe you found a WIC-allowed item that is not on the approved list or that you were not able to buy with your eWIC card, you can request a review of the item by completing this Colorado Universal Product Code Request Form.


  • Shoppers can buy as much WIC food as they want at a time. eWIC will keep track of each month’s food allotment.
  • WIC can reload the benefits card without the participant having to make a trip to the clinic.
  • WIC can get more helpful information about WIC purchases.
  • Store employees don't have to determine whether a food is Colorado WIC eligible. The electronic system knows.
  • Works just like a debit card  
  • Each WIC family gets one eWIC card. At checkout, the WIC shopper swipes the card, just like a debit or credit card, and enters a personal identification number (PIN). WIC pays for the allowable foods and deducts them from the family's WIC account.
  • The family’s food benefits will be added together. For example, a pregnant woman and her 3-year-old receive a total of 72 ounces of cereal, 36 ounces for each. If the mom purchases 12 ounces of cereal, her store receipt will show a balance of 60 ounces of cereal remaining. 
  • The family gets a monthly report for the total amount of each WIC food benefit.
