What are my options after my NDIS application is rejected? Can I get a review or appeal? What do I need to do?

You may be able to get help from your local MP to have the decision reviewed. Here is an example of an opposition MP working with the government to get a better NDIS outcome for a local family:

PS. If you are not sure who your local member is currently, you can look them up and find their contact details by searching your postcode here:

I would interested to know why. You have 90 days to submit more evidence and then the application will go to internal reviews. I  would probably choose to wait 3 months and reapply. I have applications sitting in IR from June 2018. Appeals can take 2 yrs. I would read the rejection letter, look at the evidence you submitted, wait 3 months and reapply. If the evidence is incorrect and doesn\\\’t relate to the Act it won\\\’t be accepted.   Obviously I have no idea about your application so am unable to give specifics.
