Would you like someone to manage your funding package with you? Plan Management may be what you are after.
A registered plan management provider is a term used to describe an individual or organisation that undertakes the management of funds of the supports of your plan.
You may request consideration of the use of a registered plan management provider to manage some or all of the funding for supports in your plan.
A registered plan management provider might undertake financial activities, or financial and service activities.
Financial activities include such things as the organising of providers and their payment, the processing of expense claims, the development of monthly statements for you, and claiming money from the National Disability Insurance Agency.
Service activities involve a range of activities to assist YOU in negotiating and coordinating the provision of your chosen support.

Where possible a plan management provider will also assist in increasing your skills in all of these activities.
