Use this form if you’re a deputy appointed by the Court of Protection and the person you’re acting for (your ‘client’) needs help with the cost of the following Office of the Public Guardian (OPG) deputy fees:
£100 deputy assessment fee
£320 general supervision fee
£35 minimal supervision fee
The form guidance also explains how and when to pay the fees.
You can apply for an ‘exemption’ or a ‘remission’.
If your client receives certain means-tested benefits, you won’t have to pay any deputy fees – this is called an ‘exemption’.
The qualifying benefits are listed in the form guidance.
If your client’s income before tax is less than £12,000 a year, you may only have to pay 50% of the deputy fees – this is known as a ‘remission’.
You can’t get a ‘remission’ for a minimal supervision fee.
