As with other NDIS supports, you have three options for who manages your individual living option funding .
- Self-managed: you, or your plan nominee or child representative, manage the funding and pay your providers.
- Agency-managed: we manage the funding and pay your providers.
- A registered plan manager manages the funding and pays your providers.
Learn more about ways to manage your funding in Our Guideline – Creating your plan.
If you choose to self-manage your individualised living option, there’ll be some further considerations. This includes potential conflicts of interest for any paid support who is also your plan nominee. For more information, speak to your local area coordinator, support coordinator or planner.
You’ll need to use an NDIS registered provider if you self-manage certain supports, for example behaviour supports.
