FAQ

The first step to accessing the NDIS is meeting the eligibility criteria.
To access the NDIS, you must:
* have a permanent disability that:
~ reduces your ability to participate effectively in activities, or perform tasks or actions, unless you have support, and
~ affects your capacity for social and economic participation, and
~ means you are likely to require support under the NDIS for a lifetime.
~ You must also be:

* an Australian citizen, or
* the holder of a permanent visa, or
* hold a Protected Special Category Visa, and
* be aged under 65
If you are eligible for the NDIS, you will need to contact the NDIS and ask for an Access Request form, or alternatively, download the form via the NDIS website.
There are different eligibility processes depending on factors such as whether you are already currently receiving disability funding.

To find out if you are eligible for NDIS funding, you can use an online tool called the NDIS Access Checklist.

This tool asks questions that can help you to work out if you are eligible for NDIS support.

If you are already receiving funded disability support, you will be contacted by a NDIS representative when it is time to prepare and then plan for your future support under the NDIS.

You will still need to go through an eligibility process, but this will be simpler than the process for people who are new to receiving disability supports.

Preparing to transition into the NDIS is important. You can prepare by collecting information you already have, or by reading Pink Comfort’s free guide to accessing the NDIS to assist you with navigating access to the NDIS.

If you want to change something in your plan, you can always request a plan review. Make sure you explain as clearly as possible how and why you need to make changes.

If you do not currently access disability services, but think you might be eligible, then you will need to be assessed for eligibility to access the NDIS.

You will have to complete a detailed assessment process to provide the NDIS with information about you, your disability and the level of support you need if you have a permanent disability. The NDIA will work with you to confirm your eligibility for the NDIS.

Once your eligibility is established, you will be given a reference number that you can use when you contact the NDIA to talk about eligibility and access to supports.
