Age UK Northamptonshire can become an appointee in situations where you or a family member is incapacitated for a time and needs help with their financial affairs.  

If you do not have anyone else to manage matters for you we can step in to help.

Call 07554 618 941

Jamie Christie can help where someone may be having an operation followed by a prolonged stay in hospital, or perhaps in the longer term, if you or your partner are having capacity issues.  If you need help managing your financial affairs please contact us to find out more.

As appointee we would be restricted to managing one bank account on your behalf and would only be entitled to claim for and manage the following benefits:

  • Attendance Allowance
  • State Pension and Pension Credit
  • Disability Living Allowance
  • Personal Independence Payment
  • Other benefits or grants that you may be entitled to

An appointee does not have authority to access or manage any other accounts in your name including any private pension or other income that you have.  If you were to regain the capacity to manage your affairs during this time, the appointeeship would immediately cease but we would continue to provide as little or as much support as you wish under the Money Management Support.

We charge

  • £80 set up fee
  • £60 per month management for as long as is required

We are now requesting all clients to make payment for our regular services by direct debit.  This is a simple and safe way to make regular payments for a service.

Who can use this service?

Anyone who lives in Northamptonshire.

If you would like to discuss this service please contact Jamie Christie on 07554 618 941 or email
