How to apply for NDIS

Once you have determined that you are eligible for the NDIS the next step is to make an Access Request. You can do this in several ways, depending on your preference and abilities.

Providing the information needed about your disability

Along with your request, you will need to attach documentation. How much depends on whether you have received previous funding as part of other disability schemes in Australia.
Information about your disability, including evidence, is required to help determine if you fit the disability or early intervention access requirements. For example:
The evidence you provide must be recent (no more than 12-months old), and comprehensive. You will need to provide evidence from your treating health professionals, including GPs, surgeons, therapists, neurologists or physiotherapists, among others. These health professionals must have treated you for a significant period of time (e.g. at least six months). In addition, you may also need to complete a Supporting Evidence Form.
The intention of this documentation is to confirm the nature and impact of your primary disability on your day-to-day quality of life and daily functioning, which will help establish the appropriate type of care needed, and therefore the required funding. History of previous treatments and future treatments with expected outcomes will also form part of the application process.
