SUBJECT 1: New WIC Banking Contractor

  1. New WIC Banking Contractor:  On January 1, 2010, Missouri WIC will have a new banking contractor.  There will be three changes to MOWINS checks.  First, starting on January 1, 2010, the checks will have different MICR account numbers.  The MICR number is the line containing special characters at the bottom of MOWINS checks.  Second, during the month of January, ITSD staff will flash your MOWINS printers.  After this is finished, you will notice the bank logo on MOWINS checks has changed to “Security State Bank, Howard Lake, MN 55349”.  The third change is in the wording above the Description box:  “Valid only for the purchase of:/allow all food listed below:” Please open the attachment to see these changes.

    If you have questions, please contact Larry Rutledge at Larry.Rutledge@health.mo.gov or 573-526-0226 or 800-392-8209.
