What is the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way to help people under 65 years of age with a disability to get care supports, and is designed to help people with a disability achieve their goals.

Who is eligible?

To become an NDIS participant a person must:

  • Have a permanent disability that significantly affects their ability to take part in everyday activities;
  • Be aged less than 65 years when you first enter NDIS; and
  • Be an Australian Citizen or hold a permanent visa or protected special category visa

Understanding my plan

An NDIS plan has three support budgets:

  1. Core
  2. Capital
  3. Capacity

You will receive reasonable and necessary funding under the relevant budget depending on your support needs.
