Welcome to NIISQ

The National Injury Insurance Scheme (NIISQ) is a no-fault Scheme which provides eligible people with necessary and reasonable treatment, care and support, in some cases for their lifetime.

Anyone who experiences serious personal injuries as a result of a motor vehicle accident in Queensland, on or after 1 July 2016, may be eligible to receive support from NIISQ.

NIISQ vs NDIS

The NIISQ & the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) are two separate schemes designed to provide funding and access to support for people with a disability.

They are administered by different agencies, and also have different eligibility requirements, available supports and funding methods.
