NDIS Planning

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

What is the NDIS?

The NDIS is the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).  It changes how disability services are provided in Australia and is the new way of providing individualised support for Australians under the age of 65 and who have a permanent disability.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) gives you more choice and control over the services and supports that you need. It is designed to help you achieve your goals.

It is an insurance scheme that gives everyone peace of mind that if they or a loved one, have a permanent disability then they will have the flexibility to determine their needs and the supports that would be best for them, giving them more choice and control over their own lives.

The NDIS takes a lifetime approach, investing in supports for people with disability as early as possible so that they can reach their goals and enjoy an ordinary life.

Who is eligible for NDIS?

To be eligible for the NDIS you must:

  • Have a permanent and significant disability or a developmental delay
  • Be an Australian citizen, or hold a permanent visa or a Protected Special Category visa
  • Be under 65 years of age
  • Need support from a person or equipment to do everyday activities

If you want to be part of the NDIS, you must first meet the access requirements of the NDIS.
