To be able to apply for and receive access to the NDIS, you’ll need to answer yes to all of the questions on the following checklist.
Are you an Australian citizen, permanent resident or hold a Protected Special Category Visa?
Are you under 65 years of age?
If you’re over 65 when the NDIS reaches your area, you won’t be eligible – but that doesn’t mean you won’t receive support. People aged 65 or over who currently receive disability supports will continue to receive the same funding system and level of support as before.
Do you live in an area where the NDIS is currently available?
You won’t be able to register with the NDIS until six months before it arrives in your area. Take a look at our Queensland rollout map
to check when it will be available to you.
- Require support from a person or equipment to carry out activities of daily living because of an impairment or condition that is likely to be permanent?
- Require some supports now to reduce your support needs in the future?
