WGC serves people with disabilities throughout the State of Wyoming in their 1st Party (beneficiary funded) and 3rd Party (trusts funded by persons other than the beneficiary) Pooled Trusts. We administer each trust with the beneficiary’s best interest in mind and help them navigate the complexities, rules and regulations that come with public benefits’ eligibility (SSI, Medicaid).
