NDIS

How the NDIS is doing things differently, but beware.


By Marriott , March 2 2018

Most things in life we agree to we have to sign for, like…

  • getting a licence or a new job
  • putting something on lay-by
  • renting a place
  • applying for a loan, bank account or passport
  • selecting an electricity or gas provider
  • ordering furniture.

Your signature is a sign that you agree.

But not when it comes to your NDIS plan.

Strange but true.
Once you have your meeting with the NDIS Planner, it may be a Local Area Co-ordinator (LAC), and the plan is processed through the NDIA (National Disability Insurance Agency) – it is taken as agreed by you. Unless you go for a review but it is much better not to have to.

Beware, no signature is required for the plan to be active.

Why is this important?
Because as soon as your NDIS plan is processed your current funding arrangements cease and NDIS funding kicks in. If your Disability Services Provider, Marriott Support Services is one, is not aware, this could lead to an interruption of your current supports, which is not good for you, and a delay in starting your new supports.

What you need to do?

  • Keep an keen eye out in the mail for your NDIS plan
  • As soon as you receive your plan TELL us so we can ensure your current support continues without interruption.
  • Contact us, for participants at [email protected] or for supported employees at [email protected]
