Responsibilities of recipients

The usual responsibilities of a WIC recipient are:

    * Being responsible for the WIC check/voucher and the recipient's WIC identification card. In many cases, a WIC check/voucher cannot be replaced if the check is damaged or lost.
    * Using the WIC check/voucher within the specified date range.
    * Selecting only the specified items on the check/voucher. The items also must be WIC-allowed items. For instance, a WIC check/voucher holder purchasing a gallon of milk must select the lowest cost product, usually store brand and not the premium brand.
    * Must not exceed a certain sale amount (this is not used for all WIC checks/vouchers, depending on local/state regulations).
    * Complying with retail personnel during a WIC transaction.
