Are you eligible?
Who can access the NDIS?
You can access the NDIS depending on your age, residency and disability.
- Age — if you are under 65 years of age.
- Residency — if you live in Australia and are an Australian citizen, or you have permission to live here permanently.
- Disability — if your disability is life-long and affects how you manage everyday activities. This means you need help from other people or special equipment to do certain things.
If you already receive disability support, you will need to transition to the NDIS. You will be contacted by an NDIS representative when it's time to transition to the scheme. It's important you find out what you can do to get ready for the NDIS. If you don't currently receive disability services but think you could be eligible, call 1800 800 110 or to see if you can access the NDIS visit the Access Requirements page of the NDIS website.
