The court appoints a guardian of the estate when it finds that a person is not able to manage their financial affairs. The guardian of the estate is responsible for disbursing funds and represents the person in legal proceedings. "Estate guardian" and
"conservator of estate" mean the same thing as "guardian of the estate".
