The paper or PDF copy of your NDIS plan includes valuable information in each category. This tells you how each section of your plan is funded, if any parts are stated, or if any funding is set aside for particular purposes. It carries more information than the summary you see when you log in to the MyPlace Portal.
Your NDIS plan is typically posted to you at home, but is also visible from your portal. Saving it to PDF like this usually gives you the same format and information as your paper copy.
This is most easily done using a computer. Save as a pdf. Then you can attach that pdf to an email and share it.
If you use a phone and choose to share your plan by email, only a link is shared. The person receiving that email will be asked to log into your account and will not be able to access your plan.
there is a known glitch in the system where sometimes participants are not able to save their plans as PDFs in this way. Splash families having this difficulty have had success in contacting the NDIS, who have resolved it within a few days.
