MiLife-Victoria is a registered NDIS provider

MiLife-Victoria is a registered provider with the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA). This allows us to provide services to people who are a participant of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

Are you eligible for NDIS funding?

To be eligible for funding under the NDIS there are key criteria that you must meet.

You must have a permanent and significant disability that:

  • Reduces your ability to participate effectively in activities, or perform tasks or actions, unless you have support;
  • Affects your capacity for social and economic participation, and
  • Means you are likely to require support under the NDIS for a lifetime.

    You must also be:

  • An Australian citizen aged between 7 and 65;
  • Or the holder of a permanent visa;
  • Or hold a Protected Special Category Visa;
  • Planning for the NDIS

    You can start planning for the NDIS now. This will help to ensure that you have all the relevant documentation ready to prepare for your NDIS plan.

    See the attached NDIS Support Catalogue and Price Guide to give you an estimate of costs for each service.

    You may also wish to register online for MyGov, if you haven’t already done so, and link your account to the NDIS Portal.

    You will have the opportunity to revise your plan overtime. You will have control over the supports you require along with the flexibility to manage your budget to purchase supports you choose to.

    Who will support me?

    If you are living with a disability or permanent impairment, you may have a carer, friend or family member who can support you through the NDIS process. You may also be allocated a Support Coordinator through the NDIS. MiLife-Victoria staff may also be able to provide support and guidance for you. Visit our Support Coordination page for more details.

    If you are a carer of a person with a disability you will have the support of the NDIS Local Area Co-ordinator to help you through the process. However, as a carer you may wish to also access support from the following websites:

  • Department Of Social Services

  • Carer Gateway

  • Carers Australia

  • NDIS Resources
