When you and Your child meet with an NDIS professional to develop your child's NDIS plan, you'll also talk about how you want to manage your child's funding. You can have as little or as much help as you need.
There are four options:
You can choose to manage the funding for your child's support. You can do this yourself, or you can have a nominee do this on your behalf. This nominee might be a member of your family, a friend or a carer.
Registered plan management provider
You can choose to have a registered plan management provider manage some or all of the funding for your child's support. A registered plan management provider can find and organise support for you, pay service providers, take care of the paperwork, and work with your service providers to decide how and when your child gets support.
You can choose to have the NDIA manage the funding for your child's support. Under this option, you choose the service providers you want from the registered provider list on the NDIS website, and you organise the support your child needs directly with them. The NDIA can help you find and get in touch with the registered service providers. The NDIA then pays the providers directly.
A combination of the management options above
You can choose different options for different support. Your child's plan might have a combination of options.
