Participants

If you are a person with disability who wishes to participate in the NDIS, you must first be assessed against the access requirements.

On this page, participants in the NDIS can find information about the planning process, making decisions about support, working with providers and managing their plan.

Scheduled plan reviews - 1 December 2016

The National Disability Insurance Agency (the Agency) is committed to ensuring that participants continue to receive funding so they can exercise choice and control over the services they receive and has implemented a number of processes to support this.

Some participants who have scheduled plan reviews due during the months of September 2016 to February 2017 have had their plans extended.

This will enable participants to continue to exercise choice and control over their supports, flexibly utilise their core supports and ensure continuity of supports.

Some participants may have extensions of 90 or 130 days, others for 6 or 12 months, depending on their circumstances. Find more about plan extensions in the Frequently Asked Questions below.
