In Tasmania the NDIS is being rolled out progressively, by age.

What should I do if I am eligible by age?

An access request is the starting point for entry to the scheme.  This can be submitted at any time once you are eligible by age, and will commence the process for your first NDIS plan.

It is important that this process is undertaken prior to someone’s 65th birthday, if accessing the Scheme for this first time.
