Home / ILS Blog / How ILS Can Help You with the National Disability Insurance Scheme

National disability insurance scheme or as it is known in the short from NDIS, is a way support is provided to suitable people who are suffering from permanent conditions, which requires them to have the assistance of others on a daily basis. Anyone who is accepted as an Australian citizen or has a permanent visa to Australia can apply for this scheme. But you have to be also considered suitable to receive their help under the disability requirements too.

If you are someone who is interested in getting the help of NDIS you should learn a little bit more about the scheme.


Eligibility for NDIS

As we have mentioned earlier someone has to be an Australian citizen or a permanent visa holder to apply for this scheme. At the same time, you have to also live in an area where this scheme is implemented. Some areas will also carry an age requirement which means you have to be at a certain age to be able to apply for this scheme.

Then, you have to consider about the disability requirement as not all people suffering from all kinds of diseases are supported by this system. Your condition should be something that is considered permanent. This means the disease will most likely last as long as you live. It should also make you unable to take part in any social or economic work to support yourself on your own. The need to have people to help you out or special equipment that will aid in your daily activities, will also help qualify for this scheme.
