A plan administrator will help you monitor your funds and provide you with financial reports. A support coordinator will help you understand and implement the supports included in your plan. A support coordinator will connect you with providers and other community and government services. The plan administrator is a financial intermediary who is there to help you manage your NDIS plan funds.
Watch our YouTube video What Does an NDIS Plan Manager Do? NDIS plan management gives you the support you need to get the most out of your funds while giving you maximum control over how you use them. Just call the NDIS at 1800 800 110 or your local area coordinator, whose contact details will be included in your NDIS plan. We provide a professional, friendly, and most importantly, personal plan management service, allowing you to get in direct contact with your personal customer care manager when and where you need it. In addition, having a plan administrator does not mean that your entire NDIS plan will be managed, but that they will only take care of the financial aspects.
At the planning meeting, tell the NDIS staff or your local area coordinator that you would like an NDIS plan administrator to support you. By hiring a plan manager, you can focus on achieving your goals, without the stress of paying bills and overseeing NDIS budgets. We'll talk more about the different options later, but first let's look at what exactly plan management is. Plan administrators are paid a monthly fee for the life of their plan, which goes to the “Better Living Choices” portion of their capacity building budget.
However, it's important to note that not all categories can be managed through a plan, so ask the plan administrator or support coordinator for advice on this. Both NDIS plan management and NDIS support coordination are services that help people implement their NDIS plan, but they do so in different ways. The National Disability Insurance Agency (the organization that manages the NDIS) provides funds within your NDIS plan to pay a plan administrator, so you don't have to spend a lot of money. Therefore, if you request plan management at your meeting, your NDIS planner and NDIA should provide it to you.
