Connecticut WIC assistance is intended for those families most in need of nutritional support. Fraud and abuse take resources away from those who need them most.
Examples of WIC fraud include:
- Benefit recipients reselling the food items they received with WIC vouchers
- Benefit recipients misrepresenting information to qualify for benefits
- Recipients trading vouchers for non-WIC grocery items
- Vendors overpricing WIC foods for increased reimbursement
If you have information about a recipient, vendor or health care provider who may be committing fraud or abuse of the WIC Program, email email@example.com or call 1-800-741-2142 toll free.
