Eligibility for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in Australia is based on specific criteria. To be eligible for the NDIS, you must be under the age of 65 and have a permanent and significant disability that impacts your ability to participate in daily activities. The disability should be likely to be permanent and require support from the NDIS throughout your life.
Additionally, you must be an Australian citizen, a permanent resident, or hold a Protected Special Category Visa. Meeting the eligibility criteria does not guarantee automatic entry into the NDIS, as each individual’s circumstances are assessed on a case-by-case basis. It’s important to contact the NDIS or visit their official website to learn more about the eligibility requirements and the process for applying to determine your specific eligibility status.
