Pip appointee

george20 Community member Posts: 2 Listener
I need some advice.  My son is coming up to 16 in July and I have had a letter about being his appointee.  His dla is currently paid into my account as he cannot be responsible to look after it due to his ASD/ ADHD. 
So my question is can I still be his appointee if I also claim pip? Will this be a conflict of interests.  My husband looks after the both of us. But I receive my pip and my son’s DLA in my bank.   Thank you in advance
