WHAT IS THE NDIS?

NATIONAL DISABILITY INSURANCE SCHEME?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the new way of providing support for people with disability, their families and carers in Australia.

The NDIS will provide about 460,000 Australians under the age of 65 with a permanent and significant disability with the reasonable and necessary supports they need to live an ordinary life.

As an insurance scheme, the NDIS takes a lifetime approach, investing in people with disability early to improve their outcomes later in life. By supporting people with disability achieve their goals, including independence, community involvement, employment and wellbeing. Supports may include personal care and support, access to the community, therapy services and essential equipment.

The NDIS helps people with disability to

Receive reasonable and necessary funded supports

The NDIS can pay for supports that are reasonable and necessary. This means they are related to a person’s disability and are required for them to live an ordinary life and achieve their goals.

Assistance from the NDIS is not means tested and has no impact on income support such as the Disability Support Pension and Carers Allowance.

The roll out of the NDIS began on 1 July 2016 and is being introduced in stages around the country over the next three years to ensure it is successful and sustainable.

NATIONAL DISABILITY INSURANCE SCHEME FAQs

You’ve been asking and we’ve been reading!
Answers to the questions you’ve asked.

What is the National Disability Agency (NDIA)?

The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) is the agency that implements the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

What will the NDIS fund?
NDIS provides long-term, individualised support that is reasonable and necessary to meet the needs of people with permanent and significant disability.
Who is eligible?

To be eligible for the NDIS you will need to meet the age, residency, and disability or early intervention access requirements.

Eligibility depends on several factors including:
Disability requirement: you will be assessed based on the impact of your disability on functional capacity. Age: you have to be aged between 0-65 years old – if you’re already enrolled, once you turn 65, you can choose to continue with the NDIS.

You do not need to be registered with Disability Services, or any other Government department, to participate in the NDIS.

What if I need disability support now but the NDIS has not yet rolled out to my area?

You can request support from Disability Services in any of the below ways:

Online: www.ndis.gov.au

By phone: Contact your local service centre and make a request over the phone with an intake officer on 1800 800 110 

In person: You can go in person to your local service centre and a customer service adviser will help.

What if I have a disability but I do not meet the access requirements for the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) is able to connect you with community and mainstream supports to help you pursue your goals and aspirations, and participate in daily life.

There will be continuity of support provisions if you are not eligible for the NDIS and currently receive disability supports from the Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services.

What will change under the NDIS?

The NDIS will change the way disability supports are funded and delivered. The NDIS is administered by one national agency, the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA), rather than multiple state-based disability service systems. Supports and services to help a person achieve their goals will be listed on their NDIS plan.

People will:
– Be funded for the reasonable and necessary supports they need to participate in
daily life
– Have choice and control over how, when and where their supports are provided
– Be able to access a broader range of mainstream and community supports, as
well as traditional disability supports.

People do not need to be registered with Disability Services, or any other Government department, to participate in the NDIS.
