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.
You can contact the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) on 1800 800 110 if you have any questions about access to the NDIS.
When you have gained access to the NDIS, the NDIA or one of their partner organisations will work with you to develop your first plan.
If you don’t meet the requirements, find out what you can do if you’re not eligible for the NDIS.
