If eligible, people with a significant and permanent disability will transition to the NDIS at different times depending on where they live.
Applying for the NDIS
To apply, you will need to complete an Access Request Form, which is available by contacting the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) on 1800 800 110. This can be done 6 months from the start date of the NDIS in your local area.
If you will be turning 65, we encourage you to apply as soon as you can. Your eligibility will be taken from the date you apply, not the date that you turn 65.
You may also wish to take a short five-point eligibility questionnaire using the NDIS Access Checklist.
