Leap in! “frees my life from the burden of administration,” says Lindsay.

“Every month, Leap in! emails me a check-up on my plan, showing how my budgets are travelling, what I’ve spent and where I still have funds to use… This information makes me more proficient in understanding what the NDIS can do for me. I think I’m using my plan better as a result.”

Benefits of plan management

Plan management is one of the options for managing your NDIS Plan. It gives you choice and control over your NDIS budget while providing support with administration such as bookkeeping, audits and managing budgets.

  • Freedom to choose how you use your NDIS funds
  • Use registered providers or an unregistered provider
  • Get help to keep track of your NDIS funding and budgets
  • Someone to manage and pay your invoices
  • Less administration and paperwork
  • No out of pocket expenses (the NDIS provides additional funds for plan management)
  • Cheaper rates for some supports as plan managers are registered NDIS providers
  • Use it to manage all or part of your NDIS Plan (combination plan).

Plan management FAQs.

Getting plan management included in your NDIS Plan is easy. You simply need to ask the NDIS for it. This is usually done at an NDIS Plan meeting or plan reassessment. It can also be done at any time, between plans by contacting the NDIS or your local area coordinator. Need help? Call one of our Crew on 1300 05 78 78 – we are here to assist.

If you already have plan management, you’ll find it under the Capacity Building – Improved Life Choices budget.

The NDIS covers the cost of plan management by putting extra funds into your NDIS Plan for this purpose. There is no additional cost to you and it doesn’t affect the funding you get for other supports.

You can change to Leap in! any time, even if you are mid-way through your plan. You don’t even need to wait until your exit period from your existing plan manager is finished. However, it is important to check the notice period you need to give your current plan manager and notify them of the date you wish to stop using their services.

Yes! We refer to this as a “combination plan”. The benefit of a combination plan is that you can manage each part of your NDIS budget in a way that suits your needs. For example, if you are juggling NDIS Plans for multiple family members and need help with the finances or if you currently self manage but want to do less admin.

NDIS reasonable and necessary: What it means plus a handy checklist.

Whether you’ve been with the NDIS for a while or are just getting started, chances are that you’ve come across the term ‘reasonable and necessary’. It’s often used when discussing whether the NDIS would fund a certain support or service.

5 tips for utilising all of your NDIS Plan budget.

Did you know that around 25% of NDIS funding still goes unspent? That’s a lot of funding for supports and services that could help you achieve your goals. And if you don’t spend all the funds allocated in your NDIS budget, they don’t roll over to the following year.
