This calculator can help you understand how much support you have available in your plan. It is based on how much funding you have available and how long you have left in your plan. The calculator can provide an estimate of the funding available based on a selected timeframe (such as $200 per month) or the number of hours of support (such as 10 hours per week).

This may help you work out how much support you can buy for the duration of your NDIS plan and stay within your budget.

Important things to know

  • This budget calculator may not work completely for everyone. For example, if your situation is very complex, you might need to get specialist help to organise your plan budget.
  • This budget calculator only works for one type of support each time. The supports organiser (XLSX 30KB) might be helpful for thinking about more than one support.
  • Sometimes there are delays in payments being made to providers. This means the amount of funding showing in the myplace participant portal will not always include all the supports you have already received.

Information needed to use the calculator

  • Your plan review date (this helps work out how many months or weeks are left in your plan). This is the "NDIS plan review due date" which you can find on page 1 of your NDIS plan.
  • How much funding is in your plan for a particular support. You can find this in the Funded Supports part of your NDIS plan. The amount you need is from the budget column of the funding table.
  • How much has already been spent for that support. You can find this in the Funding Report in the myplace participant portal. If you are at the start of your plan, you can use $0

Budget calculator

Do you want an estimate of how much funding is available or how many hours of support are available?
The calculator can estimate how much funding is left in your NDIS plan or how many hours of support you can buy.
How often will you use this support? (every month, fortnight, week or day)
The calculator can tell you the dollar amount or the number of hours of support available every month, fortnight, week or day.
Some types of support are charged on a per hour basis. Your provider should give you this information in your service agreement.
You might not need the whole amount from your plan for a particular support. Your plan might have money for a few different supports. For example, you might have a total budget for Improved Daily Living which may include several different sorts of supports, such as occupational therapy, psychology and some support worker help.
If you have started using your plan, you might have already received some supports. The calculator needs to know how much has already been spent to work out what supports you can get in the future. You can get this number from the myplace participant portal or from your own records.

Your NDIS funding is available for the duration of your plan. The review date is needed to help the calculator work out how much time is left in your current plan.
