How to Claim Period Swimwear Through NDIS: A Comprehensive Guide

As an Australian citizen, resident, or permanent visa holder with a disability, you may qualify for financial assistance for sanitary and incontinence leak-proof period swimwear products through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). This support can make a significant difference in maintaining your quality of life and confidence, especially when it comes to participating in water activities. In this guide, we'll walk you through the eligibility criteria, the claiming process, and what you need to know to make the most of this benefit. 

Eligibility Criteria for NDIS

Before diving into the claiming process, it's essential to understand if you qualify for NDIS support. You may be eligible if you meet the following criteria:

  1. Age Requirement: You must be under 65 years old when you apply.
  2. Residency Status: You must be an Australian citizen, a permanent resident, or hold a special category visa.
  3. Disability or Early Intervention Requirements: You must have a permanent and significant disability or meet the early intervention requirements.

If you meet these criteria, you can apply for NDIS support, which can include financial assistance for period swimwear products.

How to Claim Your Period Swimwear on NDIS

If your NDIS plan is either self-managed or plan-managed, you can claim back your period swimwear purchase through the NDIS. Follow these steps to ensure a smooth process:

  1. Check with Your Plan Manager: Before placing an order, it's crucial to verify with your NDIS plan manager whether your purchase will be covered. This step is essential as some plan-managed clients may not be reimbursed by the NDIS.

  2. Purchase Your Period Swimwear: Once you have approval, visit our online store and purchase your desired ladies or period swimwear. Ensure you save all payment receipts and order confirmations.

  3. Request a Tax Invoice: After making your purchase, email us at with your order number to request a copy of the tax invoice. This document is necessary for reimbursement.

  4. Submit Your Invoice for Reimbursement: Forward your paid tax invoice to your plan manager or directly to the NDIS for reimbursement under your NDIS plan.

If you need a tax invoice before placing your order to provide to your case manager, contact us at We'll arrange to send an invoice that includes a link for online payment. Once payment is made, your goods will be dispatched promptly.

What If My Request is Denied?

We understand that sometimes requests can be denied. If, for any reason, your reimbursement request is not approved by the NDIS, we offer a full refund for the order, provided the items are unworn and in new condition. Simply reach out to us via email or our contact page to initiate the return process.
