This calculator can help you understand how much support you have available in your plan. It is based on how much funding you have available and how long you have left in your plan. The calculator can provide an estimate of the funding available based on a selected timeframe (such as $200 per month) or the number of hours of support (such as 10 hours per week).
This may help you work out how much support you can buy for the duration of your NDIS plan and stay within your budget.
Important things to know
- This budget calculator may not work completely for everyone. For example, if your situation is very complex, you might need to get specialist help to organise your plan budget.
- This budget calculator only works for one type of support each time. The supports organiser (XLSX 30KB) might be helpful for thinking about more than one support.
- Sometimes there are delays in payments being made to providers. This means the amount of funding showing in the myplace participant portal will not always include all the supports you have already received.
Information needed to use the calculator

- How much funding is in your plan for a particular support. You can find this in the Funded Supports part of your NDIS plan. The amount you need is from the budget column of the funding table.
- How much has already been spent for that support. You can find this in the Funding Report in the myplace participant portal. If you are at the start of your plan, you can use $0
