What do you mean by proof of income?

This means all income coming into the household (this means every person in the household) in which you live, including child support, unemployment benefits, and all revenue from your job. It has to be the most recent pay stubs for the last month. School loans don’t count. If you are living off your savings, you must bring in a bank statement showing the withdrawals. 

Income needs to be brought to each certification unless we have seen it in the last 60 days. Proof of income is critical for re-certification and you will be rescheduled if not provided. It is also helpful to know if you get paid biweekly or twice a month. If you are self employed you can bring your most recent tax return. If you qualify for Medicaid or TANF, they will automatically qualify you for WIC.
