Finally! Online Access to the AFU

Families have been complaining for years that they did not have timely access to their child’s autism funding.  Some unscrupulous therapists have taken advantage of this fact to extract more funding than the families intended.

The Autism Funding Unit (AFU) has now joined the 21st century. Finally, families can:

  • View and manage their child’s funding
  • View and edit approved authorizations and
  • Submit forms online

The procedure to sign up is only slightly painful.

  • First, you need to sign up for a Basic BCeID 
  • Ensure the parent signing up has signing authority for the autism funding
  • Next, sign up for My Family Services
  • After the AFU gives their approval, you will be able to log into My Family Services.

On the My Family Services dashboard, you will be able to access and manage your child’s autism funding.

  1. Families can also access their Affordable Child Care Benefit account through this portal too. Thanks for this, Milburn, I have passed the information on to all our families at Community Living Victoria Autism Services.

  2. I did register several days ago and am still waiting for approval. I’ve heard this from another parent as well. I tried to log in just now to my account and still seems as though it is pending AFU approval.

    1. Several days is a bit long. You might want to contact them if you don’t hear anything in the next few days. Don’t forget to check your spam folder as well.
