Are the Disability Support Pension and the NDIS linked?

The Disability Support Pension along with other income supports and payments such as the Carer Payment, Carer Supplement, Carer Allowance and Child Disability Assistance Payment are entirely separate to the NDIS.These payments will not be affected if a patient qualifies for NDIS funding (the exception to this is the Mobility Allowance from Centrelink, which may be replaced if your patient’s NDIS plan includes transport-related funded supports).It’s important to note that someone who is receiving the Disability Support Pension is not automatically eligible for NDIS funding and supports - Read more here - https://www.ndis.gov.au/applying-access-ndis/how-apply/information-gps-and-health-professionals/supports-faq
