NDIS Plan Management

No worries and no confusion with DFM Financial by your side

Commencement

The process begins once an eligible participant requests to receive specific supports or services and resources are available to fulfil those services. The onboard process is important as it helps set the standard for clear communication with the participant (and their representative). DFM maintains professional customer service throughout this process to promote customer satisfaction.

 

  • A completed and signed service agreement is required before services can start.
  • All required assessments and plans should be in place ideally within three months of the participant commencing services.
