NDIS Information & Resources

The NDIS is a new way of providing individualised support for people with disability, their families and carers. It will provide all Australians with a permanent and significant disability, aged under 65, with the reasonable and necessary supports they need to live an ordinary life.

How do I know if I'm eligible for the NDIS?

According to the NDIS website, to be eligible for the National Disability Insurance Scheme, a person must:

  • have a permanent disability that significantly affects their ability to participate in everyday activities
  • be less than 56 years old when they first enter the NDIS
  • be an Australian citizen or hold a permanent visa, or a protected special category visa
  • and, live in Australia where the NDIS is available.

The NDIS website has published a handy eligibility checklist:

How do I apply for the NDIS?

Anyone who thinks they might be eligible for the NDIS, can download an Access Request Form (ARF), and a Supporting Evidence Form (SEF), work with their GP, allied health, and specialist medical professionals to prepare and provide the information required.

Anyone who thinks they are eligible for the NDIS can:

  • phone 1800 800 110 and make a verbal access request, or
  • download and complete the ARF on your computer and email it to the NDIA with supporting information, or 
  • download the ARF on your computer, print it out, and mail it to the NDIA with supporting information, or
  • email NAT@ndis.gov.au and ask for an ARF to be mailed, or 
  • contact your local NDIA office and asking for an ARF to be mailed to you.
