Requesting Plan Management
Requests for a Plan Management budget can be made during the initial planning meeting, or at an NDIS plan review. If you didn't have Plan Management in your initial plan, you can request an early plan review, stating that you'd like to include it.
Unlike most other budgets, you do not need to justify why you want Plan Management, and there aren’t eligibility requirements. You simply need to ask for it during a planning meeting or review, and it will most likely be automatically approved and included in your NDIS plan.
Once you have Plan Management included in your NDIS plan, our Plan Managers can manage your funds, giving you back the time to do what you love.
Requesting a plan review
If you disagree with a decision in your NDIS plan or have a change in circumstances, you can ask for a plan review at any time. Each case is considered by the NDIA.
You may contact the NDIA to discuss how to include Plan Management in your plan.
