There is a time limit to apply for a review by the AAT

You have 28 days from the time you received the decision from the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) to lodge your application for review with the AAT.

I ran out of time to lodge my application

You can ask us, in writing, to give you more time. You will need to tell us why your application is late.

You can do this by:

Check our contact details to lodge the application in person at one of our registries, or send the application by post, email or fax. 

After you apply for an extension of time

When we receive your application for an extension of time, we will send a copy to the NDIA. The NDIA has 14 days to tell us if they don’t want us to give you more time.

If the NDIA don’t get back to us or if they say you can have more time, we will generally make a decision without holding a hearing.

If the NDIA does not want to give you more time, there will usually be a hearing before an AAT Member. The hearing might be by telephone or online by video using Microsoft Teams or in person at an AAT registry. If you need an interpreter, please tell us and we will organise one.

The AAT Member will make a decision whether to extend time after hearing what you and the NDIA have to say.

We will only start the review if we decide to extend the time limit.
