As an NDIS participant, you have complete choice and control over how your funding is managed – but you don’t have to do it without support. It is easy to feel a little overwhelmed when trying to access NDIS supports. From the planning process to ongoing plan management, there are a lot of moving pieces to this puzzle. If you are in this boat and are looking for a little extra help, here is why you should consider an NDIS registered plan management provider. 

Why you should use a plan management agency NDIS

One of the most common reasons people choose to use an NDIS plan management provider is because navigating through all the requirements and systems can be stressful. Managing your NDIS plan is much more than just ticking boxes, you will need to carefully consider budgets, funding and financial reporting, along with record keeping and admin in order to meet the requirements. So it makes sense to have a person on your ‘team of supports’ who is well versed in plan management and can budget accordingly.

At the end of the day, your NDIS plan is exactly that – yours – meaning you have the final say in how your allocated funds are used. But, if you are looking to maximise your budget, access personalised support, gain greater freedom at a zero-dollar price tag, choosing an NDIS plan management provider might be the best route for you. 

What does a plan management agency NDIS do? 

A quality plan management provider can connect you with your own personal plan manager, who will be your guide and support throughout the entire NDIS planning and monitoring process. To help you reach your goals, your plan manager will: 

  • Monitor your NDIS plan funds 
  • Receive and pay invoices on your behalf 
  • Make claims in the NDIA portal from relevant budget categories 
  • Send monthly financial reports to you and the NDIS 

A plan manager can help you in many more ways than just maintenance. If you are looking to upskill, or your goals centre around increasing autonomy and independence, your plan manager can also help you:

  • Increase your financial and plan management skills 
  • Broaden your horizons by introducing you to other NDIS providers. 

Budgeting support 

Once you set your goals and receive your plan, you will receive a budget tailored to the services you require. This budget could be spread across a variety of services and across a host of providers so it can be easy to lose track of finances, especially if you are new to the NDIS landscape. This is where effective management of your funding is paramount. 

Making sure your providers are paid on time from the appropriate budget allocation is one of the most important administrative tasks an NDIS participant must undertake. Failure to do so can negatively affect your supports and hinder you from achieving your goals and living the life you deserve. We all need help from time to time, and engaging expert support to handle your funding can be extremely beneficial to keep you focused on what really matters.

Peace of Mind

By leaving the administrative duties, bookkeeping and paperwork in the hands of an experienced plan manager, your time doesn’t need to be taken up by mundane tasks – making it easier for you to spend more time living your life!
