Once you have your NDIS plan in place and working, what’s next? It’s crucial to revisit your plan and ensure it’s still working for you.
In this post, we’ll give you tips on avoiding unnecessary spending.
One of the most critical aspects of the NDIS experience is monitoring your budget. If you don’t keep track of your spending, you risk running out of money and having to pay for support out of pocket or not receiving it at all.
The fundamentals of budgeting.
How to keep track of your finances.
Create a budget.
Monitor your spending.
There is a form of protection.
We suggest a service agreement with your providers that defines an agreed-upon budget to avoid the unpleasant surprise of a larger-than-expected bill. With an existing service agreement in place, the Ebenezer Mission team can ensure that your spending is in line with this budget, protecting you from unintentional overspending.
Have you gone over your budget?
If it appears that you will run out of funds before your NDIS daily living support in Sydney expires, don’t panic – you still have several options.
If it doesn’t work, talk to your Local Area Coordinator about if it’s worth getting a review of your NDIS plan so you can apply for more money. Keep in mind that this is a time-consuming, evidence-based procedure that isn’t always successful, so you shouldn’t depend on it – and if you do, you should request one as soon as possible rather than waiting until the end of your plan.
What's the next step?
The crucial thing to remember is that your plan is intended to provide you with constant ongoing support while also allowing you to reach your goals. The advantage of having a plan manager is that you can focus on living your greatest life rather than time-consuming tasks like admin and bills.
