Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000

Section 33: Transfer of funds

135.This section allows the Public Guardian to approve the transfer of the adult’s funds to a different account. This might be convenient, for example, if the adult or person with access to their funds moved to a different address. The Public Guardian might also authorise movement of the account to allow funds to be lodged in an appropriate high interest account, from which payments under the scheme could be made directly.
