Moving from the NDIS

Like everyone, people with disability move from time to time. People participating in the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) trials in WA who decide to move can have confidence that they will have continuity in their funded supports. This is the case regardless of where they move to.

For permanent relocation out of a WA NDIS area, staff will work collaboratively with the relevant state, territory and programs to ensure a smooth transition and minimal impact on the individual.

There is a guarantee of portability of funding under the Intergovernmental Agreement for the NDIS. This means that individuals will receive similar support and 12 months funding, as per their existing plan.

This allows people time to secure supports, services and funding at their new residence, with the assurance their existing levels of support will continue for up to 12 months.

The below factsheet summarises the procedures that have been agreed regarding a person moving out of an NDIS trial site or moving interstate.
