Firstly, assess your eligibility
Before applying for the NDIS funding it becomes important to read the eligibility criteria outlined with NDIS. The website of NDIS consists of a simple questionnaire before applying for the funds. In case you are not eligible for the NDIS funding, you will be entitled to other support and benefits.
How to apply for NDIS funding
If you have completed the questionnaire and have determined if you are eligible for receiving the funding, the next step will be to apply for NDIS.
You will have to make an ‘Access Request’ with the NDIA. There are three ways one can do this:
Give a call to NDIA on 1800 800 110 or you can get help from us by calling (03) 94926982 and asking for guidance with the Access-Request.
Download and submit the access recommendation form and send it to NAT@ndis.gov.au.
Get in touch with your Local Area Coordinator (LAC) or NDIA office and ask to make an Access-Request.
The process involves you proving the NDIS eligibility and identity.
Once you submit the Access-Request, the NDIA will process the request. As it gets approved, one will be contacted by the NDIA or a LAC to arrange a planning meeting.
Once the planning meeting is scheduled, you will require documents as well as information related to yourself and give NDIS a better understanding of you. This can be given easily if you have complete knowledge about yourself, the disability, type of support as well as assessment of your health.
Preparing for your planning meeting is an extremely important tool. It helps to ensure the NDIS Partner gets the right funding for the goals and needs.
If you choose for a face-to-face NDIS planning meeting you can bring a supporter with you. At CarePro Disability Services, we’ve acted as a supporter for numerous clients.
Our purpose during this meeting is to advocate on your behalf while making you feel safe and secure.
