For most people on the NDIS, you will do a plan review every year.
Plan reviews are an opportunity to check if your supports are working for you and how your goals are going. Your NDIS plan won’t stay the same ‐ it will change over time as your needs change. Plan reviews are important because they make sure that your NDIS plan is working for you.
Preparation is key.
When it comes to plan reviews, one of the best things you can do is prepare properly. On this page, we have everything you need to prepare for your plan review.

We got all of our NDIS experts to come together and design a free resource to help you get ready for your plan review.
It’s been designed to be both painless to fill out, and to help you get the best outcomes from your plan review meeting – we have countless people swear by it!
There’s been a lot of anxiety around getting less funding in a plan review.
The outcomes are different from person to person.
One thing we can say with certainty is that great preparation increases your chance of getting a plan that you are happy with.
That said, it can depend on the experience of the Planners as well.
If you’re aged 7 ‐ 65, your plan review conversation will be conducted by either an NDIS Planner or a Local Area Coordinator.
If you’re under 7, it will be with an Early Childhood Early Intervention Partner.
Yes. We’ve been seeing people come back with 24 month plans and that has us a little concerned. By doing a 24 month plan, the NDIA is saying that they are anticipating that your needs and goals aren’t going to change over a two year period.
For some this will be the case, but for others, their support needs will change.
If you foresee your needs changing sometime in the next year, it is important you talk about this with your Planner.
If you do end up with a 24 month plan, and your needs change, you can apply for a review (see below).
If your personal circumstances change significantly and this affects the supports you need from the NDIS, you can request a plan review at any time by completing the change of circumstances form.
This is different to being unhappy with the supports you receive in your budget. If you’re unhappy with a decision, you’ll need to get a review of decisions. We've put together a blog on what to do if you are unhappy with your NDIS plan.
Absolutely. If you received funding in your first plan for a Support Coordinator, they will be able to help you prepare for your second plan.
Here is a list of the key things you should take to your NDIS Plan Review:
A small number of people have been finding that there is a gap between when their first plan ends and their second plan begins.
If this the case for you, the NDIS will cover the cost of supports as long as they are in line with what you were previously receiving in your plan.
