Questions regarding surrogate compensation are among the most frequently inquired. We pride ourselves in offering generous compensation packages to our surrogates with total compensation averaging around $45,000. The total compensation package is dependent on various factors including the surrogate’s state of residence, number of babies carried, whether or not she has existing “surrogacy friendly” health insurance, if she has prior surrogacy experience, and more. The FSC Team works with each applicant to ensure that she is receiving a compensation package that fits her individual qualifications and comfort level.
A typical compensation package looks like this:
|Start of Medication Fee (per cycle)||$500|
|Mock Cycle or Cancelled Cycle Fee||$500|
|Embryo Transfer Fee (per transfer)||$750|
|Monthly Allowance (to start with start of medications)||$200/month|
|Multiple Fee (per additional fetus)||$5,000|
|Invasive Procedure Fee (per invasive procedure)||$500|
|Housekeeping (when medically necessary)||$90/week|
|Maternity Clothing Allowance (paid at 14 weeks):|
|Loss of Reproductive Organs Fee:|
|Lost wages for Surrogate:||Actual – as ordered by physician|
|Lost wages for Surrogate’s partner:||Actual – max five days|
*Add $5,000 for experience surrogates; add $5,000 for surrogates with pre-existing “surrogacy friendly” health insurance
The financial benefits of helping a couple or individual build their family are often a primary factor for women when first contemplating becoming a surrogate – FSC fully understands and appreciates this! We know that the compensation package is significant enough to be life changing – but we promise you, the emotional rewards are more than you can even imagine while still on this end of the process! The gift you will give by carrying and delivering a child into their loving parents’ arms is too powerful an experience to capture with words.
