The Commonwealth and Western Australian (WA) Governments have agreed to provide additional time for people to transfer from the WA Government's State-based National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) to the nationally delivered NDIS.
Australians with disability are set to benefit from a new approach to the NDIS Information, Linkages and Capacity (ILC) Building program.
The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) has made changes to its Review of Decisions Operational Guidelines, in response to recommendations made by the Commonwealth Ombudsman.
The NDIA is reducing its hours of operation from 25 December 2018 to 1 January 2019 inclusive. Regular operations will resume on Wednesday 2 January 2019.
The NDIA appreciates the work of the Joint Standing Committee on the NDIS, and welcomes evidence based insights and reviews, which ultimately help the NDIA deliver a better service to participants.
The NDIA will reduce its hours of operation from Tuesday 25 December to 1 January 2019 inclusive. During this reduced activity period, NDIS payments will be processed as detailed.
