Earn Generous Compensation as a Surrogate

When you become a surrogate, you can make dreams come true and help create families. But being a surrogate isn’t just life-changing for the baby’s parents and their entire families. It can also provide amazing benefits for you and the ones you love. When you become a surrogate, you will earn compensation that you can use to pay off your mortgage, save for your child’s college education, fund a family vacation or go back to school to better support your family.

One big benefit of working with CSP is the confidence that your financial interests will always be protected. Before you proceed with the surrogacy process, we will ensure that a trust fund is fully funded to cover all of your fees and expenses throughout the pregnancy, so you’ll have surrogate compensation right up-front and money when you need it.

At the Center for Surrogate Parenting (CSP), we have been supporting hopeful parents and surrogates for more than 40 years. We know that deciding to be a surrogate is a big step, and we are all here to help. Our goal is to make you part of the CSP family and to support you from the moment that you complete the application until after the baby’s delivery. A big part of that commitment to you is supporting your financial needs during the pregnancy and beyond.

How Much Can I Expect to Earn as a Surrogate?

Surrogate compensation varies depending on the state you live in and whether you are a first-time or an experienced surrogate. In the United States, expected compensation usually ranges between $45,000 and $65,000. Please keep in mind that you will only receive full compensation if you become pregnant and successfully deliver a baby for the intended parents you’re helping.

In addition to compensation, our surrogacy agency will ensure that you are covered for all expenses associated with your surrogacy cycle. This includes medical insurance (if needed), IVF medications and the embryo transfer. You may receive additional income if you require a C-section or become pregnant with twins.

Surrogacy payments may also cover lost wages, childcare, travel expenses and other costs related to you serving as a surrogate.

With decades of experience, our surrogacy agency has supported countless first-time surrogates through the heart-warming process of helping hopeful parents welcome their babies. If you’ve decided to embark on this extraordinary journey, we applaud you and hope to provide you with our compassionate and knowledgeable guidance. In the early stages of the process, you will learn what it takes to help a family welcome a new baby into their lives and what financial rewards and support are available to you as a surrogate. And of course, we will help you learn how to become a surrogate through our longstanding surrogacy program.

At CSP, we are Creating Families®. We want everyone to take away amazing memories from the surrogacy experience. Because we take so much care in supporting our surrogates, the preparation process to match can take two to four months. We believe that surrogacy on your own timeline allows you to process the information and to decide if surrogacy is right for you. It also gives you time to find the right intended parents to join you on your journey.
