There are cases wherein a participant may not have overspent funds but instead might have underspent them. This article will focus on the common reasons why a participant falls into not being able to maximize his/her NDIS funding and what to do next.
If you are in this situation, it is important to know that underspending your funds does not mean that it will automatically impact your next funding so do not panic. The first thing you have to do is to identify the possible reasons which led you to the situation. Some of the most common reasons why participants fail to maximize their funds are but not limited to :
· Not being able to find the right service provider for you
· Not being able to find the right support worker for you
· Not being able to attend appointments due to health reasons
· Unplanned change/s in circumstances
· Not fully aware of the funding category or categories you are currently entitled
Once you will be able to drill down the reason/s which led you to underspend your funds, you may contact your LAC and have a discussion about your current situation.
The NDIA will make necessary assessments on what is reasonable and necessary for them to provide you with your new funding and not based on your historical spending.
