How will I access the NDIS?

To become an NDIS participant, you will need to meet the age, residency and disability or early intervention access requirements:

  • Have a permanent impairment that significantly affects your ability to take part in everyday activities, or have a developmental delay;
  • Be aged less than 65 when you first apply to enter the NDIS;
  • Be an Australian citizen or hold a permanent visa or a Protected Special Category visa.

For some people already receiving supports from State and Territory Disability programs, evidence of your disability may not be needed. This is because some State and Territory programs have the same eligibility criteria as the NDIS.
