The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) has created a system where participants can nominate a ‘Correspondence Nominee’ in line with Section 78 – Section 98 of the NDIS Act 2013. The NDIS Operational Guidelines – Nominees further explains the process of appointing a nominee, and what steps are required to be taken by the participant, the prospective nominee, and the NDIA. Once these steps have been completed, the correspondence nominee will receive a copy of the written correspondence sent to the participant. For more information, phone the NDIA on 1800 800 110.
