Plan administration is when a provider supports you to manage your NDIS plan funds. These providers are known as plan administrators. Plan administration is not the same as having the NDIA manage your NDIS plan funds or having you decide to manage your plan yourself. Learn more about ways to manage your funds.
Plan administration is one of the options you have for managing your NDIS plan money.

The plan administrator is a financial intermediary who is there to help you manage your NDIS plan funding. Watch our YouTube video What Does an NDIS Plan Manager Do?

Anyone can choose to add plan administration to their NDIS plan without having to pay out of pocket expenses. We'll talk more about the different options later, but first let's look at what exactly plan management is. To do this, we manage your plan funding efficiently and communicate with you and your service providers to ensure that you receive the maximum benefit from NDIS funding. You don't have to decide right away exactly who manages your plan, but you should be clear about whether you want someone else to manage your plan or if you want to do it yourself or your designated person to do it for you.

In addition, it takes care of all the paperwork related to your plan and your NDIS services so you don't have to. This option is suitable for people who prefer the NDIS to manage part of their budget, but who want to be in control of certain services.
