Hi, my name is Dixon61! Query about being a financial appointee
Hello, I am hoping someone may be able to help. I have an older brother with severe learning disabilities. He lives in residential care and is funded by Continuing Healthcare. He now receives a state pension and I am financial appointee for him.
My question is what happens to his money when he passes away? It's not going to be a huge amount of money so going to the Court of Protection seems a bit heavy handed. I am keen to spend his money to improve his quality of life but I am meeting opposition from other family members.
Thanks in advance
