The commissioner shall require an annual review of the physical, mental, and social adjustment and progress of every ward and conservatee. A copy of this review shall be kept on file at the Department of Human Services and may be inspected by the ward or conservatee, the ward's or conservatee's parents, spouse, or relatives and other persons who receive the permission of the commissioner. The review shall contain information required under Minnesota Rules, part 9525.3065, subpart 1.
The commissioner shall annually review the legal status of each ward in light of the progress indicated in the annual review. If the commissioner determines the ward is no longer in need of public guardianship or conservatorship or is capable of functioning under a less restrictive conservatorship, the commissioner or local agency shall petition the court pursuant to section 252A.19 to restore the ward to capacity or for a modification of the court's previous order.
