WHAT IS NDIS?
National Disability Insurance Scheme
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the provider of information and services, connections, and capital for those with limited mobility.
Australians with permanent disabilities and need assistance throughout their life could get singled out support and services from this organization. This scheme is governed by the NDIA (National Disability Insurance Agency).
The NDIS’s specialized plans will summarize the types of relief, beneficial technology, or remedy needed to accomplish your ambitions to lead a sprightly and independent life. The NDIS provides cash for feasible and practical means to assist you to reach these goals.
Your personalized NDIS plan will outline the kind of support services, assistive technology, or treatments you require to achieve your personal goals and live a full and independent life. The NDIS gives cash for moderate and essential backing to help you achieve these goals.
Those privileged for NDIS support should be:
- Less than 65 years of age.
- Be an Australian citizen, resident, or permanent visa holder.
- Meet the impairment or early detection requirements.
Due to support given through the Commonwealth Aged Care system, those above 65 years of age are not eligible for this assistance through NDIS.
