It is a requirement for professional deputies to hold sufficient Professional Indemnity Insurance (PII) to cover the whole estate of all of their deputyship clients. The vast majority of professional deputies do have adequate PII cover but the Office of Public Guardian (OPG) have become aware of some professional deputies who do not. 

A reminder of this requirement will be added to any letters to professional deputies that OPG have identified as not meeting the requirement. If you receive a reminder and have any questions or concerns, please contact OPG at
