NDIS Appeals and Reviews

If you think a decision the NDIA has made about you is wrong, you can request a review.  Any person directly affected by a decision of the NDIA can also request a review.

ADEC NDIS Appeals is a service that helps people with a disability (or people affected by an NDIA decision) who do not agree with the NDIA internal review decision.

ADEC NDIS Appeals team assists with the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) appeal. The AAT is an external independent tribunal who can review the decision made by NDIA.

You cannot ask the AAT to review a NDIA decision until the NDIA has reviewed it. For more information how to lodge an application to AAT, click here.

The ADEC Appeals Team understands the challenges facing people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and ensures that the support provided takes into account these challenges. At ADEC, your human rights are respected and upheld.

Your ADEC Appeals Support Officer can:

  • Help you to appeal on your own
  • Explain the NDIS appeal process and what might be involved
  • Provide you with information about your rights to seek an Appeal
  • Guide you through the appeals process before the AAT
  • Attend AAT conferences and hearings with you as a support person

This service is free.

Interpreters can be arranged free of charge.

For further information about this service please contact ADEC on (03) 9480 7000 and ask to speak with the NDIS Intake Officer or email ndis.admin@adec.org.au or fill the form below.
