To check if you may be eligible, go to the original NDIS Access Checklist on the NDIS website.


The NDIS is being introduced across Australia at different times. To access the NDIS now, you must live in an area where the NDIS is currently available. In some of these areas, you also need to be a certain age to access the NDIS.

Find out if the NDIS is available in your area:

You can also contact the National Disability Insurance Agency, your current service provider/s or a Local Area Coordinator to ask about this.

If the NDIS is not yet available in your area you need to wait until it is.
