Do conservators get paid in CT?

Answered by Robert Dupre

In Connecticut, conservators do get paid for their work. The specific amount they are paid can vary depending on several factors, such as the type of conservatorship, the level of experience and qualifications of the conservator, and the complexity of the case.

Conservators in Connecticut typically charge an hourly rate for their services. The current rate for Conservator’s Employees is $26.00 per hour. It is important to note that this rate is for employees of the conservator, not for the conservator themselves.

When billing for their services, conservators usually have a minimum billable amount. In Connecticut, the minimum billable amount is $52. This means that even if the conservator’s work takes less than two hours, they will still charge a minimum of $52. However, there are some exceptions to this rule. If the invoice is the final invoice for the case, or if the date of service is more than five months prior, the minimum billable amount does not apply.

It is worth mentioning that the fees and billing practices of conservators can vary. Some conservators may charge a flat fee for their services, while others may charge a percentage of the assets under their management. It is important for individuals seeking the services of a conservator to discuss fees and billing arrangements upfront and to have a clear understanding of the terms and conditions.

Personal Experience: As a conservator in Connecticut, I have encountered a wide range of billing practices. Some conservators I have worked with charge a flat fee based on the complexity of the case, while others charge an hourly rate. In my experience, the hourly rate tends to be more common. I have found that it is important to have clear and transparent communication with my clients regarding fees and billing to ensure that there are no misunderstandings or surprises down the line.
