How do I apply for the NDIS?

Applying for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) involves a step-by-step process to determine your eligibility and access the support and services tailored to your individual needs. Here’s a general guide on how to apply for the NDIS:

 

1. Check Your Eligibility:

Before applying, ensure that you meet the eligibility criteria for the NDIS. To be eligible, you must:
– Be under the age of 65 at the time of application
– Be an Australian citizen, permanent resident, or hold a Protected Special Category Visa
– Have a permanent disability or a condition that is likely to last for more than 12 months and significantly impacts your daily living

 

2. Gather Relevant Information:

Before starting your application, gather relevant information about your disability, medical reports, assessments, and any existing support services or plans you might have in place. This information will help the NDIS assess your needs accurately.

 

3. Contact the NDIS:

Contact the NDIS by either calling the NDIS Contact Centre at 1800 800 110 or visiting the NDIS website (www.ndis.gov.au) to request an Access Request Form.

 

4. Access Request Form:

Complete the Access Request Form with all required information about yourself, your disability, and your support needs. If you need assistance or have questions while filling out the form, you can reach out to the NDIS for help.

 

5. Submit the Form:

Once the form is complete, submit it to the NDIS. You can do this online through the myplace portal, by mail, or in person at a local NDIS office.

 

6. Application Review:

The NDIS will review your application to determine if you meet the eligibility criteria. If further information is needed, they may contact you or request additional assessments.

 

7. Planning Meeting:

If your application is successful, you will be invited to attend a planning meeting. This meeting is an essential step in developing your NDIS plan. During the meeting, you will discuss your goals, support needs, and how the NDIS can assist you in achieving your objectives.

 

8. NDIS Plan:

Based on the information gathered during the planning meeting, the NDIS will create your personalised NDIS plan. The plan outlines the supports and funding you are eligible to receive.

 

9. Plan Review:

Your NDIS plan will have specific review periods to ensure that it continues to meet your changing needs. You can request a review if your circumstances change before your scheduled review date.

 

10. Accessing Support:

Once your NDIS plan is approved, you can start accessing the supports and services outlined in your plan. You can choose from a range of registered NDIS providers and services that best suit your needs and goals.

 

Remember that the NDIS process can vary slightly depending on your location and individual circumstances. If you need assistance at any point during the application process, you can contact the NDIS Contact Centre or reach out to a local NDIS office for support.
