Having trialled the service for over a year, ACM can now offer Client Accounts for our Case Management clients. The accounts benefit our clients and their solicitors because purchases can be made in a timely and cost-effective manner.
Each client has their own, named, Barclays Client Saver Account, which in addition to offering the convenience of a current account, also pays interest on the balance. There are no charges from ACM associated with the management of Client Accounts.
To date, the accounts have been used to pay for:
- Transportation costs
- Building work
- Hospital costs
- Support Worker wages
- Pre-payment “shopping cards”, and
- ACM fees
Liz Burch is responsible for the day-to-day running of the Client Accounts, and ensures that all requests for payment are authorised prior to payment. She reconciles the account at the end of each month and produces a statement showing the movement of funds over the month, which is forwarded to the fund holder.
If you would like more information please contact Liz Burch, or speak to your ACM Case Manager.
