From 9 May 2020, participants who are either Plan or Agency-managed and have a Core Support budget, will be able to use all four funding categories without the need for a plan review.
This means that, if your NDIS Plan is Plan or Agency-managed, you have more flexibility in how you use your Core Support budget.
This means flexibility in accessing the disability related supports you need to achieve your goals, for example, purchasing a smart device to participate in telepractice sessions.
It is important to remember that NDIS funding is for disability-related supports, not for everyday or ordinary living expenses.
While this change will give you greater flexibility as a Plan or Agency-Managed participant using their Core Support, your total plan amount will not change.
Participants who already receive periodic transport payments will continue to have these paid into their bank account. This funding is not flexible.
