What is the National Disability Insurance Scheme?

What is the National Disability Insurance Scheme?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme is coming. How will funding work under the scheme, and what does it mean for you?

The NDIS rollout is happening. Not only is funding for support moving away from the states to a single national scheme, this ground-breaking program puts you in control of how the money is managed.

We will work with you to identify supports you need to live your life. Supports may help you achieve goals in many aspects of your life, including independence, involvement in your community, education, employment and health and well-being.

The NDIS gives you more choice and control over how, when and where your support is provided, and gives you certainty you will receive the support you need over your lifetime.

Can I access the NDIS?

You need to meet the following requirements:

  • have a permanent and significant disability that affects your ability to take part in everyday activities
  • be aged less than 65 when you first access the scheme
  • be an Australian citizen, a permanent resident or a New Zealand citizen who holds a Protected Special Category Visa

Use the NDIS Access Checklist to find out if you might be able to receive assistance from the NDIS.
