Who Is Eligible For NDIS In NSW?

If the National Disability Insurance Scheme is available in your area, the first step you need to take is to find out if you meet the access requirements, which are available on the national NDIS website.

You are eligible for the NDIS if you:

  • are under 65 when you make your application
  • are an Australian Citizen or resident or permanent visa holder
  • meet the disability or early intervention requirements
  • are aged 65 years and over you will not be eligible for the NDIS. In most cases, you will receive support through the Commonwealth Aged Care System.
