This booklet explains the compensation available to cover loss of earnings for donors and how this process works.

In New Zealand, donors can apply for financial help to cover loss of earnings, as well as travel and accommodation costs where this is required.

You may also be able to apply for support for any unpaid earnings while you are going through the assessment process.

The booklet and information sheet are available to download in these languages: English, Māori, Samoan and Tongan.
