Applying for an internal review of a decision
If you are not happy with a decision that the Compensation Branch has made about your plan, you can ask us to review that decision.
This is called an internal review of a decision.
When we do the review, we will check if we made the right decision under the law by looking at your situation and disability support needs at the time of our original decision.
An internal review of a decision won’t consider any changes to your situation and supports that have happened since we made our decision.
If your situation and support needs have changed since our decision, you can ask us to change your plan.

Applying for external review of a decision to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT)
Once we have made the internal review decision, we can’t do another internal review on the same decision.
If you are not happy with the outcome, you can ask the Administrative Appeals Tribunal to review it.
We call this an external review.
You can’t ask for an external review until after we complete the internal review of a decision.
You must make an application to the AAT within 28 days of receiving the outcome of your request for an internal review of a decision.
