Virtual Wallet for Providers
What is Virtual Wallet?
Virtual Wallet is a user-friendly solution that enables individuals to manage their personal care funding or direct payment in a secure online environment, giving them full control of the funding they are allocated and the support they receive.
Why register on Virtual Wallet?
For providers, Virtual Wallet offers the opportunity to ensure that your services are visible to individuals within the same easy to use, online solution that manages their personalised care funding.
In addition to ensuring your services are visible to an ever-increasing number of individuals, Virtual Wallet reduces the administration associated with providing services to direct payment recipients as all bookings and invoices are managed digitally within the individuals Virtual Wallet account.
As Virtual Wallet holds cleared funds on behalf of the individual, payment is guaranteed, and invoices are typically paid within 72 hours of approval.
