Attending my planning meeting

Learn about what happens at a National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) planning meeting, what questions you will be asked, and how to prepare.

After you've successfully applied to access the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), you will get to set goals and work on your NDIS plan. The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) will offer you a time to attend a planning meeting. To prepare for your planning meeting, see the Setting my goals(opens in a new window) section of this toolkit.

A planning meeting is held with a local area coordinator (LAC) or NDIS planner. They will ask you questions to find out what supports and funding should go into your NDIS plan.

Each NDIS plan goes for a specific period of time. At the end of each plan, you will have a reassessment meeting which is similar to a planning meeting. Your plan can then be varied or reassessed to see if the supports you're receiving are still working for you. It also provides you the opportunity to set new goals.

In this section we will explore what happens at a planning meeting and help you to prepare for it.
