How we support people with ADHD

If you have ADHD, you can feel restless, you may have trouble concentrating and can act on impulse - which can all make managing your money difficult.

We worked with YouGov to commission a survey of people living with ADHD across the UK. The majority (60%) of people told us it directly impacts their financial lives because of issues with money management, costing them on average an estimated £1,600 per year.

Monzo features that can help people with ADHD

Notifications Enable notifications to get balance updates, including how much you have left to spend this month. You will also get notifications about upcoming payments so you budget ahead of time.

Pots Use Pots to set money aside automatically using Salary Sorter. This gives you better oversight of where your money is and what it’s for.

Turn off borrowing offers You can turn off borrowing offers so you don’t get notifications about borrowing you might be eligible for.

How we’re supporting you
