Administrative Appeals Tribunal

The Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) provides independent merit reviews of decisions made by Australian Government ministers and departments, and other organisations under Commonwealth laws. The AAT most commonly review decisions relating to child support, family assistance and social security, visas, the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), taxation, veterans’ entitlements, and workers compensation for employees covered by Commonwealth laws. We are independent of the person or department that made the original decision and we aim to make our review process accessible, fair, just, economical, informal and quick.
