What is NDIA?

NDIA is the National Disability Insurance Agency, a statutory agency whose role it is to implement the NDIS. The difference is that NDIA is the agency responsible for meeting with individuals to plan their future supports and to identify how much money individuals will need to pay for these. The NDIS is the Scheme that pays for these supports.


What is the NDIS?

NDIS stands for the National Disability Insurance Scheme www.ndis.gov.au. The NDIS gives all Australians peace of mind if they, their child or loved one is born with or acquires a permanent and significant disability, they will get the support they need. The NDIS is NOT a welfare system. The NDIS is designed to help people get the support they need so their skills and independence improve over time.


Who can access the NDIS?

To  access the NDIS you must meet the following criteria:

  • Have a permanent & significant disability affecting your ability to take part in everyday activities

  • Are under 65 years of age when you first access the scheme

  • Are an Australian citizen, a permanent resident or a New Zealand citizen who holds a Protected Special Category Visa.


How do I find out if I am eligible?

Use the NDIS Access Checklist tool to find out if you are able to receive assistance from the NDIS www.ndis.gov.au/applying-access-ndis/am-i-eligible


Do I need to do to prepare for an NDIA Plan meeting?

Yes, you may need to provide evidence of your eligibility including your residency status, date of birth and disability diagnosis. The NDIA planner will ask about the supports you need to live your life now and in the future. It is important that you have thought through what you want to achieve and what support you need to get to these outcomes so that your planning session can be the most beneficial. Follow this link to Participant Booklets, scroll down to the bottom to find all 3 booklets, these are a great place to start.
