Protected by our Appointee
Security Bond

The Appointee Security Bond was developed by the Money Carer Foundation in partnership with Security Bonds Ltd and Aviva Insurance. As an organisation, we understand the importance of accountability and transparency and the introduction of the bond reinforces these principles.

Emulating the requirement for solicitors and family members by the Court of Protection applying to be authorised as the court appointed deputy, we introduced the Appointee Bond in bond in 2018. The bond costs £35 per year and protects the vulnerable person under appointeeship up to £16,000 in the event of theft or fraud by the appointee.

Trustworthy Appointeeship for Vulnerable Adults

For non-professional appointees (family members and friends) the bond will recompense the vulnerable person in respect of honest mistakes made by the appointee without seeking financial redress from the appointee. Local authority safeguarding teams can inform Deputy Bond Services to enable them to start the claim process for the vulnerable person that has suffered financial loss.

Importantly, the appointee bond will aim to compensate the vulnerable person within 7 working days. Contact a member of our team today to find out more about our available appointeeship services.
