Use this form if you are a deputy appointed by the Court of Protection and need help with the cost of the following fees:

  • £100 deputy assessment fee
  • £320 general supervision fee
  • £35 minimal supervision fee

If the person the deputy was appointed to help (the ‘client’) receives certain means-tested benefits, you won’t have to pay anything - this is called an ‘exemption’. The benefits are listed in the form.

If the client’s income before tax is less than £12,000 a year, you may only have to pay half - this is known as a ‘50% remission’. You can’t get this kind of reduction for a minimal supervision fee.

The form also explains how and when to pay the fees.

Email to request this form in an alternative format, such as:

  • audio
  • large print

Include your address, telephone number and the title of the document you need.
