OMFG!! Disability befits for ADHD?? *ETA

My sister qualifies for disability income because she is ADHD.







I, personally, think it's a load of bull. Seriously? She's getting $700 for her and $350 for each dependent per month.







What is your opinion on this?



*edited with the correct amounts.

**ETA: my sister it's not disabled by her ADHD. It doesn't keep her from being able to work or live a 'normal' life. It doesn't hinder her in any way.

She brought up an old childhood diagnosis (she hadn't mentioned ADHD in over 10 years) and applied it to every job loss and bad decision she's made. She applied for $ so she wouldn't have to work. She wants to sit back and live easily, while others pay her bills.

I don't think it's right that she is getting money that she doesn't need, while others are being denied, though they truly are disabled.

    Totally serious. I'm thinking I might have ADHD at this point...

    I'm flabbergasted! I know her. It's not a disability, FOR HER. It's a minor thing that she learned could be turned into free money.

    Troll , max for 2012 is $698 , max in 2013 will be $710. My son is on disability and I just spent three hours of my day there straightening out missing files and information they needed.

    My sister, but now she wants her daughter "checked" because she could get more money for her being disabled, too.
