Symmetrii Plan Managers logo. A team dedicated to helping you get the maximum benefits from your NDIS Plan.


Designed to support individuals with disabilities, NDIS Plan Management plays a vital role in empowering participants to take charge of their support and funding. Whether you're new to NDIS or seeking a deeper understanding of Plan Management, this page is a valuable resource to navigate the world of personalised care and financial management.

Options For Managing Your NDIS Funding Budget

When you apply for funding with the NDIS or with your local Area Coordinator (LAC), you’ll be asked how you want to manage your funding budget. You have three options: NDIS Managed, Self-Managed or Plan Managed.

NDIS Managed

With this plan, NDIS pays your support providers directly but you can only use NDIS registered providers for this support. You have no option to use mainstream providers who aren’t NDIS registered, giving you less control over how you spend your funds.


With this plan, you pay the provider bills yourself and submit claims for reimbursement. You must retain records of these services and payments but you can use non-NDIS providers and you can employ support staff directly. If you select a self-managed plan, you need to be organised, and good with finances, budgeting and record keeping because you can be audited.

Plan Managed

With this plan, you can select Symmetrii to be your Plan Manager. We’ll manage your funding and pay your invoices and you can use any non-NDIS providers. You don’t have to worry about budgeting, record keeping or paying invoices. You also don’t pay for our services because the NDIS adds extra money to your plan to cover our costs.

Below is a comparison of the three specific options:

NDIS Managed

  • NDIA pay support providers directly
  • You can only use NDIS registered providers

Self Managed

  • You pay provider bills yourself and submit claims for reimbursement
  • Maintain records
  • You can use any provider including those not NDIS registered
  • You may employ support staff directly

Plan Managed

by a registered NDIS plan manager, like Symmetrii Plan Managers

  • Symmetrii can manage your funding by paying providers and being reimbursed from the NDIS portal
  • We provide you with monthly financial activity statements
  • You can use any provider including those not NDIS registered
  • No cost to you, the participant

If you nominate a plan manager, such as Symmetrii Plan Managers, to manage your NDIS budget, you will need to ensure that your planner includes a provision for plan management services in your NDIS funding budget. Symmetrii Plan Management receives separate funding to your plan which does not reduce your support funding. NDIS then pays us directly for the financial intermediary service provided to you, so there is no cost to you and no impact on the funding you receive for your other support services.

As your nominated plan manager, Symmetrii will take responsibility for paying your providers and submitting claims to the NDIS portal.

Simply choose one of the following options:

  1. Email your authorised invoice/s to us
  2. Mail your signed invoice/s to our mailing address
  3. Set up a standing authorisation for the service providers of your choice

We will process authorised invoices within two business days, under your valid NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) plan.

You will also receive regular activity statements to assist with tracking your spending.

Key Features of NDIS Plan Management

NDIS Plan Management offers several key features that empower you to manage your NDIS funds effectively. These features provide you with choice, control, streamlined financial management, and vital support and guidance, ensuring a personalised and hassle-free experience.

Choice and Control

One of the primary features of NDIS Plan Management is the emphasis on choice and control. You have the freedom to select service providers based on your preferences and specific needs, allowing for a tailored support system. This flexibility empowers you to shape your NDIS journey according to your unique requirements.

Financial management

This is another crucial aspect of NDIS Plan Management. Your Plan Manager handles the processing of invoices and ensures that funds are deducted from the appropriate section of your NDIS funding account. This process is automated and user-friendly, offering a smooth experience when making claims.

Budget Tracking

Additionally, NDIS Plan Management provides clear visibility and budget tracking. You can easily monitor your expenditure and ensure you stay within your allocated funds. This transparency helps prevent overspending and enables better financial planning.

Communication & Support

Regular communication and support are integral components of NDIS Plan Management. You receive timely updates through weekly emails, providing accurate information and ongoing assistance. This comprehensive approach ensures that you’re well-informed and supported throughout your NDIS journey.
