A migraineur is classified as having chronic migraine when migraines occur on 15 or more days a month. Other factors may be considered.

Disability

Chronic migraine is recognized under the Americans with Disabilities Act, and this may assist the working migraineur's ability to function in the workplace.[1] Depending on individual triggers, migraineurs may in some circumstances be able to request accommodations from their employer so that they may perform their duties without bringing on a migraine. This will generally vary based on location, employer, and job description.

Some migraineurs may qualify for social security disability payments, if their migraines match certain conditions and they otherwise qualify. [2]
