I had my NDIS planning meeting about 8 weeks ago. I went in with that attitude “if you don’t ask, you don’t receive.” I asked for a few items that I thought I might receive, but if I didn’t receive them I would still be OK.

My plan was approved about 4 weeks ago and I received enough funding for what I asked for.

My next step was to set up my NDIS Portal. I set about putting in the main information about myself (thinking I would be up most of the night),  however I managed to complete it, getting all the information entered in about 2 hours.

My next step was to meet with my Local Area Coordinator. I asked her to how to make payments. She showed me, and it seemed simple enough. However, on my first try I didn’t have much luck. I arranged to meet with her again to work out what was going wrong.  I now have been able to pay several invoices successfully.
