PLAN of Arizona plays multiple roles, acting as surrogate parent, sounding board, and advocate to each of the Beneficiaries and their families. PLAN’s unique support coordination component provides an individual touch that many other programs do not offer. This truly sets PLAN apart from other organizations. By assisting Beneficiaries in preserving public benefits while helping obtain items and services aimed at enhancing their lives, PLAN provides the peace of mind Beneficiaries and families’ desire.
Support Coordinators are there to help with as much or as little support as is necessary. They make and receive multiple phone calls daily regarding status updates, referrals to various outside services or vendors, and recommendations for Trust expenditures. In order to decide whether a given expenditure is appropriate, PLAN considers many factors, including the Beneficiary’s age, disability, needs, and trust fund balance. A Support Coordinator’s main concern is to enhance the Beneficiary’s quality of life while protecting government benefit eligibility. Because of this, some purchases might be discouraged in favor of a less expensive or more appropriate alternative. The Beneficiary’s best interests are always at the forefront and guide the Support Coordinators when making these decisions.
Throughout the duration of the trust, the Support Coordinators maintain ongoing contact between the Beneficiaries, their families, programs and other key people. PLAN meets annually with families of individuals who have unfunded trusts to ensure that personal information on file is current.
PLAN is dedicated to establishing long-term relationships with individuals to secure quality care, services, and support throughout their lifetime.
