NDIS Appeals

What is NDIS Appeals?

NDIS Appeals is a service that helps people who want to appeal a decision made by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA).

If you have been given a decision that you are unhappy with, NDIS Appeals can support you to put in an appeal. This appeal will help the decision be reviewed again.

SAS can now help you with NDIS Appeals

NDIS Appeals has been set up to ensure that all people with disability, and others affected by reviewable decisions of the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA), have access to support when they are seeking review of those decisions in the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT).

SAS is the only NDIS Appeals service between Parramatta and Penrith!

If you would like more information about the NDIS Appeals process click here: (“NDIS Appeals”).

What is the AAT?

The AAT has power to examine a wide range of decisions by NDIS, including who is able to participate in the NDIS and what types of support are provided to NDIS participants.  Please note: An application must be made within 28 days after you receive the decision from NDIS. The AAT may allow a longer period in special circumstances.

SAS can now assist you if you are seeking to review a decision made by the NDIA.

Who can the SAS’ NDIS Appeals Coordinator assist?

  • If you are a person with disability, and you are unhappy with a decision made regarding the NDIS
  • If you work for a service or are a professional in the field and wish to refer a person for advocacy assistance or assistance with an appeal to the AAT

  • Assist applicants to self-advocate where possible, or provide individual advocacy support, developing and implementing an individual plan in partnership with the applicant;
