  1. Zero Income Affidavit:  We have created a Zero Income Affidavit to be used since the Multi-Purpose Affidavit that is in MOWINS is no longer available.  The Zero Income Affidavit is to be used when participants say they have no income.  The participant must be asked for information as to how they obtain food, shelter, clothing, medical care, etc. The participant must complete and sign the affidavit.  The signed affidavit must be scanned and saved in the participant folder in MOWINS.  We will change the Income Assessment policy, ER # 3.02000, to refer to this affidavit instead of the MOWINS Multi-Purpose Affidavit.  The Zero Income Affidavit is attached and on the WIC web site.

    If you have questions, please contact Mark Davis at Mark.Davis@health.mo.gov or 573-526-5323 or 800-392-8209. (ONE ATTACHMENT)
