A ‘financial manager’ is a person, officer (e.g. NSW Trustee and Guardian), or organisation (e.g. a trustee company) appointed by a Tribunal (e.g. the Guardianship Division of NCAT, or the MHRT) or Court (e.g. Supreme Court of NSW) to make decisions about the ‘estate’ of a person who does not have legal capacity to make these decisions for themselves. The ‘estate’ of a person includes their financial, property and legal affairs. To read more see Chap 5.C or Chapter 13.F.3 for information about having a financial manager when receiving an NDIS package.
