The NDIS entitles people with a permanent and significant disability to full funding for any reasonable or necessary support needs related to their disability.
The scheme was legislated in 2013, officially introduced in July 2016 and is expected to be in full operation nationally by 2020 (link opens in a new window). The NDIS is overseen by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA). There are certain restrictions, and it applies only to those under 65 years.
