Calculate Your Disability Benefit

Does ADHD Qualify for SSDI Benefits?

You may be eligible for disability benefits if your ADHD has a significant and impairing impact on aspects of your work life. For adults whose ADHD is so severe they can’t work, Social Security disability benefits may be available. However, it’s uncommon for an adult with only the condition of ADHD to qualify – but there could still be hope!

How to Determine if Your Adult ADHD Will Grant You SSDI Benefits

Adult Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) can be difficult to diagnose, as traditional lab tests are not always accurate indicators. Brain imaging studies have revealed alterations in certain areas of the brain associated with ADHD; however, this technology is still developing and has limited practical application for diagnosis at present. Medical doctors, psychiatrists or psychologists usually make a definitive adult ADHD determination after interviews with patients demonstrating consistent patterns of symptoms like lack of concentration and poor judgement.
