Your level of care is determined during the assessment. Your level of care will be reviewed regularly which may result in your being assessed as needing to move to a more appropriate level of care.

You are eligible for the NDIS if you:

  • are under 65 when you make your application
  • are an Australian Citizen or resident or permanent visa holder
  • meet the disability or early intervention requirements.

Please note: people currently receiving specialist disability supports in NSW who meet the age and disability eligibility requirements for the NDIS will be able to access the NDIS in NSW, regardless of their residential or visa status.
