Am I eligible for the NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of providing support for people with disabilities – including psychosocial disability. An important part of being an NDIS participant is having choice and control over the funding received in their NDIS plan.
What is a Psychosocial Disability?
If you have a mental health condition that significantly impacts your ability to do day-to-day tasks and activities without support, this is considered to be a psychosocial disability and you may be eligible for the NDIS.
Eligibility for the NDIS is determined case-by-case depending on the impact of a person’s condition on their day-to-day functioning. The best way for a person to test their eligibility is by applying for the NDIS, and Arafmi can help.
What factors determine your eligibility for the NDIS?
There are a number of factors which determine whether you are eligible for support under the NDIS. You may be eligible to receive an individual support plan if:
- You are under 65 years of age and;
- You are an Australia citizen, a permanent resident, or New Zealand citizen who is a Protected Special Category Visa holder and;
- You have a permanent or significant disability that requires help from others to do things, equipment or assistive technology.
If you currently receive services that are funded by your state government, you will be contacted by the National Disability Insurance Agency before your area transitions. If you are not currently receiving disability services, you may still be eligible for the NDIS.
