If you love the idea of using a plan manager, the choices are yours. At Bridges Alliance, there are a few options for you to get plan management integrated into your personal NDIS plan.
At your NDIS meeting, it’s possible that you may be asked how you wish to look after the funds in your plan. Therefore, it’s important to consider your plan management options before you commit. If you believe that using an NDIS registered plan manager is the best option for your situation, all you need to do is advise the NDIS planner of your request and add plan management into your NDIS plan.
If you currently have a plan in place but believe NDIS plan management is more beneficial to you, you can ask to change your plan without having to start from the beginning. Request a ‘A light-touch review’, which is an informal name to a process for clients who wish to make small changes, or switch the financial management of their plans. You can change your plan by calling the NDIS directly.
