5. Access criteria
A prospective participant will meet the access criteria if, at the time of considering the access request, they meet the:
- age requirements (section 22); and
- residence requirements (section 23); and either the:
- disability requirements (section 24); or
- early intervention requirements (section 25);
When deciding whether a prospective participant meets the access criteria, the NDIA will first consider whether a person meets the age and residence requirements. If both the age and residence requirements are met, the NDIA will then consider whether the prospective participant meets either the disability or early intervention requirements.
Prospective participants should refer to Applying for the NDIS section of the website for further information.
