Plan review for NDIS participants 

Plan lengths vary depending on your circumstances. You will be contacted before your plan ends to discuss a review of your plan. 

The review of your plan will be conducted face-to-face or over the phone, depending on what you prefer. You can include a family member, friend, advocate, a nominee or third party decision maker, or another person in the review. 

You should bring this booklet along with you to your plan review meeting. 

Plan review for children 

The aim of early intervention is to reduce the impact of a person’s disability or developmental delay on their daily life by providing support as early as possible. If your child receives e c e i support, their review will usually be with your child’s e c e i Coordinator. 

Your child’s access to the NDIS will be assessed at each plan review. The timing of their review will depend on your child’s needs. This is to check that e c e i supports are effective and supporting your child. If your child’s development has improved and they have achieved their goals, they may no longer need support from the NDIS. 

What do you need for your plan review meeting? 

You may need to provide assessments or reports from some of your service providers for your plan review meeting. This is to show how your supports and services are helping you to achieve your goals. These reports can also make recommendations for supports and services you might need in the future. Your e c e i Coordinator, l a c or the NDIA will discuss this with you. 

Preparing for your plan review 

Reviewing your plan is an opportunity to check that your supports and services are helping you to achieve your goals. It’s important that your NDIS plan and funding continue to work well for you and are adjusted as your life and goals change. 

Think about: 

  • What worked well in your plan? 
  • What didn’t work well? 
  • Have you achieved your goals or made progress towards achieving them? 
  • Which goals you need to continue to work on and which goals you need to change? 
  • Who can help you achieve your goals? 
  • Will you need NDIS support in the future? 
  • Would you like to change how all or some of your plan funding is managed? 
  • Any assistive technology that is ageing, needs replacement or is no longer suitable. 

You do not need to pick new goals at each plan review, but your plan, supports and services should be helping you make progress, achieve new things and eventually achieve your long-term goals. 

In preparation for your plan review, please bring along progress reports from your therapists or health professionals.
