Reviewing your plan and goals

NDIS participant plan review

Your plan review is an opportunity for you to check if your supports are working for you and they are helping you work towards, and achieve your goals.

Depending on your preference, a plan review can be done face-to-face or over the phone. You are welcome to bring along, or include in the call, a family member, friend, advocate or other person when your plan is reviewed.

Your first NDIS plan review usually falls 12 months after your plan started. If you haven't heard from us six weeks prior, call us on 1800 800 110 or find and call your nearest office.

If you feel your needs are unlikely to change and you don't think you will need a plan review in 12 months time, we can offer you a future plan up to 24 months.

Your plan may change over time 

The NDIS is designed to increase a person’s skills and independence so they can live a better life. As you work towards and achieve your goals, the amount of support you need will likely change.

If a service, early intervention support or assistive technology has increased your independence and decreased your need for additional support, you may need less funding, or no longer need any funding through an NDIS plan. This means you may not need NDIS funding now, but you can contact us again in the future if you need to.

People who have an episodic disability (a disability where the impact on your day-to-day life fluctuates) may also see their NDIS funding levels change over time, just as their disability changes over time.

Plan reviews for children under seven

The aim of early intervention is to provide support as early as possible to reduce the impact of a child's disability or developmental delay on their daily life.

If your child receives Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) support, their ECEI Coordinator will usually do their review.

At each review your child’s NDIS access is assessed and each review's timing depends on their needs. We need to check all their ECEI supports are right and working effectively. If your child’s development has improved and they have achieved their goals, they may not need support from the NDIS anymore.

Before your child's 7th birthday, your ECEI Coordinator will consider their future support needs. If they have not had an NDIS plan before, your ECEI Coordinator will consider whether they might be eligible to become an NDIS participant and get a plan.
