YOU can access the NDIS depending on your age, residency and disability.

1. Age: If you are under 65 years of age when the NDIS reaches your region. 

2. Residency: If you live in Australia and are an Australian citizen, or you have paperwork that gives you permission to live here permanently.

3. Disability: If your disability is likely to be with you for life and substantially impacts how you manage everyday activities. This means you need help from other people or special equipment to do certain things. Early intervention helps people with a disability that is likely to be with them for life but could be improved by getting some additional support now. The focus of early intervention is on people getting services and supports now so they require fewer services and supports in the future and can live a more independent life. Early intervention can also help children under six years old with developmental delay. More information about early intervention is available HERE.

If you currently receive disability services you will be contacted by the National Disability Insurance Agency before your region transitions. 

If you are not currently receiving disability services you may still be eligible for the NDIS.  You will need to contact the NDIS directly to complete an access request form. You do not need a referral.  Head HERE or phone 1800 800 110.
