Budget 2016: NDIS

Posted on 4 May 2016

The Budget provides funding for the full roll-out of the NDIS across Queensland and the Northern Territory, and to extend and expand the Western Australia trial sites. Savings of $711.2million, resulting from agreed phasing for the NDIS in these jurisdictions, will be committed to the NDIS Savings Fund Special Account, once established, for re-investment in the NDIS. A total of $2.1 billion in budget savings has been allocated to the Fund. Additional budget savings will come from:

* Closing carbon tax compensation for new welfare recipients from 20 September 2016 at a saving of $1.3 billion over five years;
* Closing carbon tax compensation for those single income families not already in the welfare system but who will enter the welfare system from 1 July 2017, with a saving of $67.2 million over five years, and;
* Additional reviews for Disability Support Pension recipients, with a saving of $62.1 million over five years.
