What Does a Financial Deputy Do?

A deputy is a person that is put in place by the Court of Protection to take on the legal role of managing the finances of a person that lacks the capacity to do so themselves.

The deputy must ensure that they manage the finances of the individual in their best interest and their responsibilities include paying bills, ensuring that all the correct welfare benefits are being claimed and manage any investments, savings or property owned by the incapacitated person.
