What is the NDIS?

Introduced in 2013, the National Insurance Disability Scheme (NDIS) was introduced to give eligible recipients more control of their care plan.


Am I eligible for the NDIS?

Australian residents under the age of 65 may be eligible to receive specialised care via the NDIS.

If you are living with a permanent and/or significant disability that impacts your everyday living and requires assistance from others or equipment to complete certain tasks, you may be eligible for care under the NDIS.

To find out if you’re eligible, please visit the NDIS Eligibility Checklist webpage. Furthermore, the NDIS Price Guide 2019-20 and the NDIS Support Catalogue 2019-20 are available to review.

If you are not receiving any form of disability support, but think you may be eligible, you will need to fill out an Access Request form. These forms are available from your Local Area Coordinator, Early Childhood Early Intervention partner (if your child is under seven), your local NDIA office or you can call 1800 800 110.
