Activating your NDIS plan
Once you receive the good news that your plan has been approved, your Local Area Coordinator should be calling you within 48 hrs upon receipt of the plan. Your LAC will be responsible for explaining to you how to use the myplace portal and give you an activation code. The purpose of this code is for you to create an account on the myplace portal. This is the platform that allows a participant, nominee, or representative to access all NDIS related information about the participant. This is a very convenient tool set up for the participants where they can access their personal information, referrals, access to upcoming events, access to a list of service providers, make payment requests or claims, and manage service bookings.
Steps in activating your myPlace portal
Pre – requisite :
· MyGov Account
· Activation code

Creating your mygov account
Go to mygov account.
Create mygov account.
Input your email address, and a code will be given to you.
