The NDIS is Australia’s first national Scheme for people with disability. It provides funding directly to individuals.
We’re testing a new computer system and some improvements to the way we deliver the NDIS in Tasmania from 14 November 2022.
This test is for Tasmania only and not everyone will be involved. Learn more about the Tasmania test.
What is the NDIS?
There are around 4.3 million Australians who have a disability. Within the next five years the NDIS will provide an estimated 500,000 Australians who have permanent and significant disability with funding for supports and services. For many people, it will be the first time they receive the disability support they need.
Am I eligible?
Answer some simple questions to see if you may be able to apply for the NDIS. These questions are just a guide, the final decision about eligibility is up to the NDIA.
How do I apply?
If you meet the eligibility criteria you can ask to become a participant by completing an Access Request Form.
If you are eligible for the NDIS and have received an ‘access decision’ letter, the next step is creating your NDIS plan.
Creating your plan
Your plan is a written agreement worked out with you. Everyone's plan is different. We will ask questions about how you are going in different areas of your life, what goals you would like to pursue and what kind of help and support you need. This will help us to develop a plan that provides the right support for you.
Using your plan
Once you have your plan, there are people who will help you start it. Find out the different types of budgets, and how to use the myplace portal.
Changing your plan
Your plan reassessment is the opportunity to check your supports are working for you and they are helping you pursue your goals.
