People applying for National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) funding must be older than six years of age and younger than 65 years of age. If you’re an older person with disability, you can access services and support through the aged care system.
Older people with disability that are already receiving NDIS support when they turn 65 can continue receiving funding through the scheme or chose to join the aged care system.
Children younger than seven with disability may be eligible for support under an NDIS-linked program called Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI).
If you or your supporters have any queries about the NDIS or ECEI, you can call People with Disability Australia's (PWDA's) Information, Intake and Referral Service on 1800 843 929.
