What is the NDIS?
The NDIS is a nationwide disability service system that provides funding support to people with a disability. The scheme was launched in 2014 with an expected full rollout in 2018. There are around 4.3 million Australians who have a disability. Within the next five years, the NDIS will provide an estimated 500,000 Australians aged under 65, who have a permanent and significant disability with funding for supports and services.
The scheme has been designed to give people with a disability greater choice and control over the support they receive, providing eligible individuals with funding based on their personal needs, lifelong goals and aspirations.
Am I eligible?
Answer some simple questions to see if you may be able to apply for the NDIS. These questions are just a guide, the final decision about eligibility is up to the NDIA.
How do I apply?
If you meet the eligibility criteria you can ask to become a participant by completing an Access Request Form.
What happens if I’m Eligible?
If you are eligible for the NDIS and have received an ‘access decision’ letter, the next step is creating your NDIS plan.
Creating your plan
Your plan is a written agreement worked out with you. Everyone’s plan is different. We will ask questions about how you are going in different areas of your life, what goals you would like to achieve and what kind of help and support you need. This will help us to develop a plan that provides the right support for you.
Using your plan
Once you have your plan, there are people who will help you start it. Find out the different types of budgets, and how to use the myplace portal.
Reviewing your plan and goals
Your plan review is the opportunity to check your supports are working for you and they are helping you progress and achieve your goals.
