Important Update: Automatic Plan Extensions
(sourced from ndis.gov.au)

The NDIA has From April to 30 June, if your plan is due to end, you may be eligible to automatically extend your plan, without the need for a plan review.

An automatic plan extension means that instead of getting a new plan, your current plan will continue – with the same funded supports for the same duration as your current plan, up to 12 months.

If your plan review meeting is booked from April to 30 June and you are eligible for an automatic extension, we will get in touch to see if you would like to automatically extend your plan.

You can also contact us to request an automatic plan extension. We will discuss the options and let you know if you are eligible.

Key highlights:

  • If you are happy with your current plan, you don’t need a review. It will automatically be carried over.
  • Any plans extended will you access to unspent funding from your previous plan.
  • The extended plan will be funded at the same level as the previous plan.
  • Plans can be extended to 12 months.
  • An automatic plan extension may be right for you if your supports and circumstances are stable.

Eligibility

  • Current plan is due to expire between April- June 30th
  • Current plan is at least 12 months long
  • Participant is 7 or older

If your plan review has already started, we will continue your plan review and you will not be eligible for an automatic plan extension.

If we agree to automatically extend your plan, you will have access to any unspent funds from your current plan, plus additional funds for the extended period.
