If you are already receiving disability support services, you or your family member will be contacted by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) when the NDIS becomes available in your area. The NDIA will ask you to verify your personal details, age and residency status for NDIS eligibility purposes.
If you are uneasy about providing this information and would like some assistance, contact your CLA Coordinator who will be happy to assist you with the NDIA contact.
Your existing support arrangements will continue until you start your NDIS plan.
If you are not currently receiving any disability support services, but may wish to join the NDIS scheme when it becomes available in your area, you will need to contact the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) to request an Access Request Form.
