NDIS – The Independent Assessment – Existing Participants

If you already have an NDIS plan

From mid 2021, we will be using independent assessments as part of our normal plan review process with participants. 

We will refer you for an independent assessment at important points, such as when you:

  • are approaching a new life stage, for example starting school, or preparing to enter the workforce
  • have a change of circumstances
  • request a plan review
  • have stable supports and would like a longer plan
  • have supported independent living supports in your plan
  • are having your NDIS access reassessed
  • are preparing to transition out of the NDIS.

The NDIA will pay for your assessment.  

Once you have had your assessment, we will contact you to talk about what happens next. In most cases, it will be the beginning of a plan review conversation. 

If your independent assessment shows you no longer need the NDIS, the assessment will help show the gains you have made in your functional capacity. Information is already available for participants who are leaving the Scheme.

You can use your assessment as a starting point with your Local Area Coordinator, Early Childhood partner or heath professional when working out what supports you’d like after you leave the NDIS.
