Does income affect NDIS eligibility?
The NDIS is not means tested and does not consider your income or assets (such as a home) when determining eligibility.
To apply for NDIS funding you must:
Have a permanent impairment that significantly affects your ability to take part in everyday activities or have a developmental delay,
Meet the NDIS disability requirements or Early Intervention (years 0-7) Requirements
Be aged less than 65 years old
Be an Australian citizen or hold a Permanent visa or a Protected Special Category visa
Live in an area where the NDIS has rolled out
These requirements are referred to as the ‘NDIS Access Criteria’.
The access criteria are designed to determine whether people with disability have a current need for support under the NDIS, based on one or more permanent impairments that affect their daily living and social and economic participation – their functional capacity – on an ongoing basis.
A person can access the NDIS through the early intervention requirements without having substantially reduced functional capacity. This is because the early intervention requirements consider how a person’s disability will affect their functional capacity over time and how the potential benefits of early intervention can reduce the impact on their functional capacity.
The NDIS provides funding for these types of accommodation, as well as other support services, such as therapy and personal care. The amount of funding provided will depend on the individual’s specific needs and the level of support required.
To access NDIS accommodation, individuals need to be registered with the NDIS and have an approved plan in place. They can then work with a support coordinator or other service provider to find suitable accommodation options and access the funding and support they need.
