You might be eligible for a refund if you were overcharged deputyship fees by the Office of the Public Guardian (OPG) for England and Wales.

The refunds are only for deputyship assessments and annual supervisions which took place between 1 April 2008 and 31 March 2015.

This page is also available in Welsh (Cymraeg).

To find out if youre owed any money and how much youll get, youll need to make a claim to the OPG.

If youre a deputy acting under a current court order, you do not need to apply for a refund. Any overcharged fees will be refunded automatically.

The deadline for refund claims is 4 October 2022.

What youll get

How much you get will depend on:

  • how much you paid and at what rate
  • how long you paid for
  • whether you have unpaid fees

Most refunds will be less than 200. Youll also get 0.5% interest.
