FINRA Special Accommodations

Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Candidates

FINRA, in compliance with the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), provides testing modifications and aids to candidates with disabilities and/or learning impairments that substantially limit a major life activity (e.g., learning, speaking, hearing, vision). FINRA makes arrangements to offer examinations/sessions in a place and manner appropriate to persons with disabilities according to the ADA.

Candidates are required to submit the FINRA Special Accommodations Eligibility Questionnaire and Special Accommodations Verification Request Form for all special arrangement requests. If the appropriate forms are not completed, the request cannot be considered. While candidates are free to suggest any sort of accommodation, FINRA will make the final decision on what accommodation(s) can be provided. Decisions will be made on a case by case basis based on the documentation submitted. Thereafter, FINRA will notify the candidate or member firm in writing as to what special accommodation, if any, can be provided.


For additional assistance regarding this procedure, contact FINRA's Field Support Services department at (800) 999-6647, Option 2.
