What is NDIS?
NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) is a government scheme designed to
provide financial support to eligible Australians. They require assistance with
their day-to-day living costs due to disability or illness. The scheme was
introduced in July 2013 and aimed to cover the cost of accommodation, equipment,
services and carer payments.
NDIS provides financial support to eligible Australians with disabilities or
chronic illnesses. If you meet the eligibility criteria, you can apply for
funding from the scheme.
What services does NDIS provide?

How do you qualify for NDIS?
You may qualify for the NDIS if you have a disability. To qualify, you must be
assessed as having a disability and meet the essential needs associated with
your disability. It's also essential that you can access and use NDIS services
The NDIS is only available to those with a significant impairment that
substantially limits one or more of their major life activities. If you are 18
or older and receiving income support, the Disability Support Pension (DSP), or
the Youth Allowance, you are automatically eligible for the NDIS.
You will need to assess your income and assets if you are receiving DSP to
determine whether you are eligible for NDIS. If you are not receiving income
support, you will probably need the NDIS.
There are three main components of the NDIS
- Health Care
- Employment Support
- Community Living Options
Each component has different objectives, but they all work together to help
people with disability live a more independent life.
People can get their health needs met through the NDIS if they have an
impairment or condition that affects their ability to function in everyday
activities. This includes medical conditions such as diabetes, epilepsy, asthma,
arthritis, cancer, heart disease and mental illness. It also includes physical
conditions like cerebral palsy, spina bifida, muscular dystrophy and
If you have an impairment or condition that makes it difficult for you to do
your job, the NDIS will pay for you to attend training to learn new skills. You
can use these new skills to find another job or start your own business.
Community Living Options
If you need an accommodation because of your disability, the NDIS will help you
find a suitable place to live. A home is not just a roof over your head; it's
where you feel safe and comfortable. So, whether you want to stay at home, move
into a supported apartment or share a house with other people, the NDIS can make
sure you have the right type of accommodation to suit your needs.
How does NDIS help people with disabilities?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides benefits that help
disabled people live independently. The scheme is replacing the Social Security
Disability Pension. The NDIS is available to all people, even those who have
never received payment from the DSP. It provides support to people with
disabilities throughout their lives. Rent, food, transportation, and equipment
are some of the costs covered by NDIS.
NDIS is an Australian program that was launched on 1 July 2013. It provides
people with disability support workers and pays for their essential living
expenses. It differs from other social welfare programs in that it is not
means-tested. Therefore, the support it provides is available to anyone who
needs it, regardless of their income or assets. Although the government covers
the majority of the costs of the NDIS, people with disabilities are responsible
for a small monthly fee.
What are the benefits of NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a landmark Australian
Government initiative that offers financial assistance and support to people
living with disabilities. It is one of the most significant social reforms in
decades and will change the lives of people with disabilities in Australia. To
live independently, people with disabilities can access assistance, support, and
accommodations through the NDIS. Support is also provided to people with
disabilities who need assistance with activities of daily living.
The NDIS is a valuable support system for people with disabilities. A wide
variety of services are available to them, including health and education
assistance, employment assistance, and transportation. A person with
disabilities can also be assisted to live independently under the NDIS as long
as they require assistance.
