If you’re an Australian resident with disability, you may be eligible for individualised supports through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
To apply, you must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident and be aged between seven and 64 years of age.
You must also be living with what’s considered a significant permanent disability that has an impact on different areas of your life.
There’s lots of information available for you if you want to apply for NDIS funding, including whether you’re eligible for the NDIS.
Only 10% of people with disability in Australia will be eligible for an individualised support plan through the NDIS.
But these lists are only a guide. Your eligibility will be assessed based on your individual circumstances, not what label your disability has.
If you or your supporters have any queries about the NDIS, you can call PWDA’s Information, Intake and Referral Service on 1800 843 929.
