Am I eligible for NDIS?

If you are living with disability you may be able to receive Government support through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

If you are living with disability you may be able to receive Government support through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

To determine if you can access supports under the NDIS you need to meet a number of criteria. These include:

  • You must be under 65 years of age;

  • You must be an Australian citizen, permanent resident or hold a Protected Special Category Visa;

  • You must be living with a disability that affects your ability to perform everyday activities. The condition needs to be recognised under NDIS as needing ‘reasonable and necessary supports’; OR;  You are a child under the age of 6 with a developmental delay that can be reduced by early intervention supports.

Whether you can access the NDIS also depends on if the program is rolled out in your area. You can read more information about roll out dates in the article ‘Is the NDIS near you?’
