NDIA is the National Disability Insurance Agency, a statutory agency whose role it is to implement the NDIS. The difference is that NDIA is the agency responsible for meeting with individuals to plan their future supports and to identify how much money individuals will need to pay for these. The NDIS is the Scheme that pays for these supports.
NDIS stands for the National Disability Insurance Scheme www.ndis.gov.au. The NDIS gives all Australians peace of mind if they, their child or loved one is born with or acquires a permanent and significant disability, they will get the support they need. The NDIS is NOT a welfare system. The NDIS is designed to help people get the support they need so their skills and independence improve over time.
Supports that will NOT be funded, under any circumstances, include those that are:
- Likely to cause harm to the participant or pose a risk to others
- Unrelated to the participant’s disability
- Duplicate or other supports provided under alternative funding
- Part of day-to-day living expenses incurred by the general public and not related to disability support needs (e.g. rent, groceries, household bills)
- Related in any way to income replacement.
