Bring Your Documents

Donating plasma is simple – but the number one reason new donors are turned away is because they forget their IDs. Make sure you bring everything on the list so we can check you in quickly.

A valid photo ID. This can include a driver's license, state-issued identification, passport or military ID. If you're a student, you can bring a school ID and a copy of your birth certificate that verifies your birth date. If you have an out-of-state ID, you'll need to provide proof of your current household address (see below).

Proof of your Social Security number. This can include a Social Security card, a W-2 form or a paycheck stub printed with your full name and entire Social Security number. You can also get Social Security verification from your local Supplemental Security Income (SSI) office. If you're not a U.S. citizen, you may provide your Border Crossing Card (B1/B2 VISA/BBC).

VERY IMPORTANT: The name on your photo ID MUST EXACTLY MATCH the name on your proof of Social Security number.

 

Proof of address. This can include the information printed on your photo ID, W-2 form or paycheck stub if your current address is listed. You can also use a utility bill from the previous 30 days that lists your name and address, or bring a copy of your current lease.

What Is Grifols' Donor Compensation?

Giving has its rewards, and we compensate our plasma donors for the time commitment involved in being a regular plasma donor. Donating plasma can take longer than donating blood, and plasma donors can donate twice in a seven-day period with at least 48 hours in between donations.

Rates vary, but on average you can earn up to $200 a month providing the plasma used to help make life-saving medicines. Select the plasma donation center nearest you for information about ongoing fees and special programs.

Remember, only plasma from repeat donors is used to make life-saving plasma-derived medicines. If you don't come back to make a second donation, your first donation cannot be used to produce these medicines.

How Does Grifols Compensate Plasma Donors?

Each Grifols donor receives compensation on a Grifols prepaid Visa® debit card that is refilled after each donation. Upon completing your first donation, you will receive the debit card, information on how to use it, a list of ATM locations where you can make withdrawals and contact information for the bank.

You do not have to bring your debit card with you to the donation center at each visit. Once you finish donating plasma, your card will be automatically reloaded with that day's donation payment.

Questions about donation amounts and any bonuses offered should be directed to your donation center team. Questions about your debit card balance or how to access and manage your account should be directed to the bank.

After Care

While plasma regenerates very quickly (usually within 24-48 hours) and plasmapheresis has few to no adverse effects, it is important to take care of yourself after your donation. Having something to eat and drink within two hours after your donation helps replenish your blood volume and restore your energy.
