The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) aims to support eligible candidates with intellectual, cognitive, sensory, and psychosocial disability. The NDIS also provides early intervention supports for eligible candidates with disabilities or children with developmental delays.

It is important to note that the NDIS is not a welfare system. The NDIS is a scheme designed to help people get the support that they need to improve their skills and independence over time.

What are the Eligibility Requirements to Qualify for NDIS?

According to the NDIS website, there are3 major criteria that a potential candidate needs to satisfy to be considered for the Scheme.

The criteria are:

During the processing of a potential candidate’s eligibility for NDIS, to check if a person meets the access criteria, NDIA first considers whether or not the person meets the age and residence requirements.

If the person meets both the age and residency requirements, then the NDIA will go on to consider whether the potential candidate meets the disability requirement or the early intervention requirements

After meeting the eligibility requirements for joining the NDIS, you can apply for NDIS on the official website or apply through an NDIS service provider like NDMHS.

What are the Eligibility Requirements to Qualify for NDIS?

If you do not qualify for the NDIS, you can still access other support services depending on what type of support you need. You can check the NDIS page for people who are not eligible for more information.

NDIS service providers such as NDMHS can help make the process easier by helping you apply for the NDIS and interviewing you for eligibility. If you are not eligible for NDIS, NDMHS can link you up with other forms of support services that would suit your needs
