All donors must present a valid, current (not expired) government or state issued photo identification such as a driver’s license, residency card, or passport. You must also provide proof of your Social Security number in its entirety. Your original Social Security card is preferred but if you do not have one we can also accept a W2, 1040 or other legal or government-issued document with your full name, full Social Security number and either your current address or signature. We cannot accept copies or photos of Social Security cards. Please note that if you have a suffix (e.g. Jr. or Sr.) on your Social Security card then it must also be present on your photo ID (and vice versa).
You must also provide proof of your current, local residence within 35 miles of your B Positive location if your photo identification does not have your current address listed. The following documents are acceptable for proof of address and must include your full name and have a date displayed: a utility bill within the last 3 months, bank or credit card statement dated within the last 3 months; a copy of your current lease or mortgage; a piece of mail postmarked within the last 30 days (please bring the postmarked envelope). Some exceptions may apply to the donor residence proximity requirement, such as being a college student or being military personnel. Contact your local center if you have questions about documentation.
This information is also required to return to the program if you have not donated at a B Positive Plasma in 6 months or longer.
