Changes to the South Australian Transport Subsidy Scheme (SATSS)

There are some changes to eligibility for the South Australian Transport Subsidy Scheme (SATSS) for current members who have transitioned to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

These changes are due to transport support being provided as part of the NDIS.

If your client is transitioning to the NDIS

While the National Disability Insurance Agency further refines its transport policy, current SATSS members who have transitioned to the NDIS will be issued one further book of 80 SATSS vouchers when they re-order voucher books before 30 June 2019 (in accordance with the conditions of the SATSS).

SATSS members who have transitioned to the NDIS and receive Journey to Work vouchers, should contact SATSS administration on 1300 360 840.

If your client is not transitioning to the NDIS

For SATSS members who are not eligible for the NDIS, nothing will change and new voucher books can be re-ordered as usual (in accordance with the conditions of the SATSS).

If you or your client have any questions, the SATSS information line can be contacted on 1300 360 840.
