What is NDIS ?

National Disability Insurance Scheme stands for:

National: The NDIS is being introduced progressively across all states and territories. 

Disability: Provides support to eligible people. Early intervention supports can also be provided for eligible people with disability or children. 

Insurance: 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. 

Scheme: 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. 

There are around 4.3 million Australians who have a disability. Within the next five years, the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will provide more than $22 billion in funding a year to an estimated 500,000 Australians who have permanent and significant disability. For many people, it will be the first time they receive the disability support they need.

The NDIS can provide all people with disability with information and connections to services in their communities such as doctors, sporting clubs, support groups, libraries and schools, as well as information about what support is provided by each state and territory government.

The involvement of investors with the Government through NDIS.

With the involvement of private investors it offers support to the Government. In other words, the investors relieve the Government from using tax payers resources. Moreover, investors provide additional funding which in turn will be financially rewarded by the Government. In contrast, if there was no NDIS there would be more strain on the Government (using tax payers money) to provide housing and care.

Therefore, with the NDIS there is less pressure on the tax system which means less taxes for the public. To sum up, it is a win for all parties involved being the Government, investor, NDIS participants.

NDIS Information and FAQ

  • Why haven’t I heard of NDIS before?
    • NDIS is a relatively new initiative that the Aus Government has been progressively working towards implementing over the past few years. In 2019, we have now reached the final stage of the rollout with the commitment of $700mil annually from the Federal Government in ‘rental assistance’ to compensate the owners & investors of compliant homes to drastically increase suitable housing supply.

  • Who chooses the house and land locations where NDIS houses are located?
    • At J & J International we have vast experience in looking into the best current practices and ideal locations for NDIS approved houses. The houses and the location are chosen and custom built for the waiting participants (disability tenants) needs.

      Our selected SDA’s work with the SIL’s to put together a personal plan for each participant – which involves the level of care required, the disability types and the location of the participant and who they would be sharing with. From there Land is sourced and build designs and inclusions are packaged up for the specific needs of waiting participants.

  • When does an investor receive rent payments?
    • RRC is paid fortnightly and NDIS payment processed monthly.

  • What is SDA
    • For some participants in the NDIS, they will receive funding for SDA. SDA stands for Specialised Disability Accommodation and is a system created under the NDIS for people with high support housing needs.
      SDA service providers hold the head lease and oversee the process of securing accommodation for the tenants. The SDA provider has an agreement in place with SIL providers (care services) and their role is to ensure the house has tenants and is maintained to high standard. They deal with all the related NDIS agencies and are the only entity who can handle SDA payments. They also ensure that RRC payments are managed from the tenants.

  • What is RRC
    • This is a Reasonable Rental Contribution (RRC) paid by the tenant, capped at 25% of the base rate of the Disability Support Pension and 100% of any Commonwealth Rental Assistance scheme. This is the same for the participant no matter where they live; it is approximately $9,200 p/a per person.

  • Who is SIL
    • Supported Independent Living (SIL) refers to the support or supervision to develop the skills of an individual to live as independently as possible. SIL provider’s role is to provide care services for the persons with a disability and have agreements in place with SDA providers.

  • What is NDIS
    • The National Disability Insurance Scheme provides support to people with a disability along with their families and carers. The scheme is funded by Australian Federal and State Governments to assist people to access better housing, health, education and community services.
