If you would like someone else to handle your affairs with DUO, you must give that person permission to do so. This is called authorization. The person handling your affairs on your behalf is called your legal representative. Use the Machtiging (‘Authorization’) form. The form is available in Dutch only. You will receive an answer from DUO within 4 weeks.
What is your legal representative allowed to do?
On the form, you can select in which matters you would like your legal representative to act on your behalf: financial matters only, examinations and financial matters, or submitting a letter of objection. For more information, see the table below.

Change or revoke authorization
You can revoke authorization at any time. You can also change the personal information of your legal representative. To do this, fill in and resubmit the Machtiging form.
