Do Deputies also provide the services of an appointee?


Yes, and importantly, more than that of an appointee.

If the Court of Protection instructs a deputy to act in all financial matters including welfare benefit entitlement 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 tasks 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.
