Do Deputies also provide the services of an appointee?


Yes if the Court of Protection instructs a deputy to act in all financial matters or specifically Social Security matters, the deputy becomes fully responsible for the management of the customer’s financial affairs. As part of their duties, a deputy will be responsible to undertake the role of an appointee to manage a clients benefits, make claims (including completing and signing any claim forms), collecting and receiving benefit payments and reporting any change in circumstances to the DWP.
