Surrogate compensation is a broad subject. I think that it is safe to say that no one considering being a surrogate is simply in it for the money. While the compensation is good, it is a 24 hour a day job. So, the hourly compensation wouldn’t calculate to be very substantial.
Surrogate compensation is a base amount paid in installments throughout the pregnancy. The average base amount is between $25,000 to $35,000 based on experience, number of fetuses being carried, and insurance coverage.
In addition to the base amount, the surrogate also receives allowances and benefits for her care. You will find that these additional benefits are designed to ensure that surrogates are well taken care of, comfortable and as worry-free as possible.
Ultimately, every surrogate pregnancy is different; but, we make sure that you are fairly compensated for the incredibly important and honorable role you have on someone’s journey to parenthood. Frankly, true compensation is incalculable.
Compensation for Egg Donation
Along with the appreciation and gratitude from your recipients, our donors are well-compensated for their time, effort and dedication. Donors are paid from $5,000 to $10,000 and an increase can be expected with subsequent cycles. We adhere to the ASRM (American Society for Reproductive Medicine) guidelines, the organization that sets the standards for our industry.
In addition to the compensation paid to your financial compensation, travel expenses (if required) will be paid for by the recipients. Companion travel expenses will be covered as well. Additional reimbursements may be possible, if receipts are kept and the expense is deemed appropriate.
Egg donation is typically an altruistic act, and we trust that compensation is not the main motivation for donating. We are in the business of growing families, which is a reward in and of itself.
