How do I get NDIS Funding?

  • You will be contacted when it is your turn. The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) will call or write to you, your family or carer to assess your eligibility for the NDIS.

  • If you are eligible, you need to think about what supports you need and who you would like to provide them.

  • You will continue to receive the support you need until you move to the NDIS.

  • An NDIS representative will invite you to a group session to help you get ready for the NDIS.

  • An NDIS representative will set up a meeting with you to talk about your first plan. At the meeting you will talk about your life and the supports you receive now.

  • The NDIA will contact you when your plan is ready and will let you know how you can use it.

The NDIS takes a lifetime approach. It is in place to help people with a disability day-to-day, as well as to learn the skills to live independently. Setting goals is an important element of every NDIS plan, as it gives both you and the NDIA an idea of what actions to take in order to improve your future.

Before applying for an NDIS plan, it is a good idea to consider what you want from your funding. Here are some questions you can ask yourself in order to come up with achievable goals that will shape your plan:

  • What is important to me?
  • How do I like to spend my time?
  • What do I need to live an ordinary life?
  • How could my health and wellbeing improve?
  • What networks could I be connecting with to help me?
  • What will help me be more involved in the community?
  • How can I build confidence in different aspects of my life?
