Am I required to claim someone as a dependent if over age 18 if they qualify as one? I get no benefits for doing so it seems, but my daughter would benefit

No, you are never "required" to claim a dependent on your return.  The decision to claim a dependent or not is one you should make after determining which choice is most beneficial for you.
