An NDIS participant can make a plan management request at any time. There are 3 types of Funds Management:


1. Self Managed. Only recommended if:

  • you have the the time
  • you know how to budget
  • you understand the NDIS Price Guide
  • you are computer savvy and have access to the internet at home.


2. Plan Management Provider. Recommended for flexibility, greater choice of providers, and easy tracking of your NDIS funds. Let the professionals worry about paying invoices, auditing and providing you with up-to-date balances of your funds.


3. NDIA Agency Managed. The NDIA portal can be temperamental at times and not all providers of your choice are NDIS registered. This is the most restrictive option.
