decision, question, response

You can come to the planning meeting by yourself or bring along a family member, friend, advocate or anyone else.

If you want help to arrange an advocate to attend with you, contact your ECEI Coordinator, LAC or NDIA Planner.

If possible, please bring to the meeting:

  • This booklet with as much information flled in as you can.

  • Proof of your identity, for example, a passport and driver’s licence. You can fnd the Proof of Identity fact sheet on the NDIS website ndis.gov.au for more information.

  • Your bank account details, if you are considering self-managing all, or a portion of your NDIS funding.

  • If you are bringing along someone who you have given consent to act on your behalf, they will also need to supply proof of identity. If you bring along someone who works for an organisation that represents you they will be asked to verify the details of the organisation. A person from an organisation that represents you could be a Public Guardian, a disability advocate or a legal representative.

  • Any other information or reports completed by health professionals or service providers you think would be helpful for the NDIS to understand the impact of your disability, and your personal circumstances.

  • A list of any assistive technology that you use, for example, a wheelchair, modifed cutlery or communication device.

  • Your myGov login and password details (if you need help with this, talk to your ECEI Coordinator, LAC or NDIA Planner) so you can log on and we can show you how to use the NDIS myplace portal.

Given that the only information that can be taken into account is that which was supplied for the meeting, an additional type of information that is worth taking are printouts from the NDIS website that backup and justify the right of the Participant to accessing that type of support funding.  It is also worth highlighting the sections that apply on these printout.
