Yes, you can claim your daugher as a dependent.

In general if child is 19 but under 24 - the child must be a full time student for 5 different months and you must have provided more than half of her support; If the child is not a full time student, her gross income must be less than $4050 for the year, but social security doesn't count either, so you meet that test as well.
