Why Plan Management?
The NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) is giving flexible support under your own control to meet your short term, medium term and long-term goals as support for people with disability.
Your goals may be becoming more independent, learning new skills, developing skills, enrolling and completing education, getting and/or keeping jobs, becoming more active in community, making more friends,…etc
To meet any goals and to achieve them you need realistic approach and budget.
When we talk about budget – NDIS allocates you funding which can be managed in 3 ways.

Second way, Self-managed where you will be self-managing your NDIS funding. Self-management can be stressful. You may to spend few more hours to keep records, update service providers payment, manage the bookkeeping and budgeting work. It also comes with many responsibilities as
Participating in any payment auditing where you will need to provide invoices, receipts or other evidence to show you have spent your funds in-line with your NDIS plan. You also need to keep records of invoices, receipts for remittance.
Advising the NDIA of any significant changes in your circumstances that may result in you being unable to meet your responsibilities as a self-manager.
Showing how you’ve used your self-managed funding towards reaching your goals at your plan review.
