The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

What is the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is run by the Australian government. It provides a personalised funding package (allocation) to people living with an ongoing disability. The scheme is designed to give recipients greater control and choice over how their funding package is spent.The NDIS is being rolled out over four years to 460,000 people and will cost more than $22 billion. It is being funded by Australian taxpayers who are contributing to a 0.5% increase to their Medicare Levy since it was introduced in 2013.

How do I know if I am eligible?

Use My Access Checker to find out if you are able to receive assistance from the NDIS, and what the next steps are.If you live outside an NDIS trial site, your existing funding and supports will continue. These will remain in place until the NDIS is introduced to your area or is extended to your age group.

Taking control before the NDIS rollout

The NDIS offers many opportunities for you to take more control. But you don’t have to wait around for the NDIS to come to your area.If you already receive a government funding package, you may be able to take control of that now through self direction or self management. This can include choosing, hiring, and managing your own support workers. Call us on 1300 73 65 73 to find out more.

Making the most of your funding

The administration fees and operational expenses of disability support providers can significantly reduce the number of hours of support you receive from government funding.By being well informed, and exercising your right to choice and control, you can make the most of the available funds. This means getting more hours of support to do the things you want to do.
