National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) FAQs
What Is The NDIS?
The NDIS is a revolutionary initiative for anyone living with a disability or supporting someone living with a disability. The NDIS is all about the individual having choice and control and helping them to get the most out of what they want in life.
The NDIS can offer funding 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 Carer Allowance.
Who Is Typically Covered By The NDIS?
The NDIS supports a range of Australian Citizens and Permanent Residents under the age of 65.
To get help from the NDIS, you usually have to have an impairment or condition that is likely to be lifelong, which reduces your ability to carry out tasks independently.
The list of conditions covered is extensive, and in some cases, varies from person to person.
