Am I Eligible For NEIS?

There are two steps in the eligibility check: your personal eligibility and the eligibility of your business. To be eligible as a person you must be:

  • be at least 18 years of age

  • be available to participate in pre-NEIS training (3 days a week for 3 weeks)

  • be able to work full-time in your NEIS business (unless you have been assessed as having partial capacity to work, have reduced participation requirements or are a volunteer within employment services).

You must not:

  • be an undischarged bankrupt

  • be working more than 15 paid hours per week

  • have received NEIS assistance in the past year

  • be someone who receives only partial assistance under the Stream 1 (Limited) services.
