Financial Compensation for Surrogate Moms
One of the main reasons that people choose to join the ranks of surrogate mothers is to help people add a new member to their family. With the rising number of people who struggle with infertility, more and more people are looking for surrogates to help them. An additional benefit of becoming a surrogate mom happens to be financial. Here are some of the financial benefits that you can enjoy:
For starters, you’ll be able to get your healthcare covered throughout the pregnancy. You can get the best care, and you won’t have to worry about the costs that you’re accruing to get it.
Time and Energy
You’ll also receive compensation for all of the time and energy that you’ll spend as a surrogate. The compensation typically range from (depending on your state of residence) $46,000 to $50,000 for a first-time surrogate, additional expense funds. You can use this money for a down payment on a new home, to cover the cost of a new car, to pay off your school loans, or to cover your day-to-day expenses. The amount varies based on location, whether you are a repeat surrogate or not and the number of babies that you’re carrying.
Of all of the states in the US, California, Nevada and Illinois have the highest rate of compensation for surrogates. This is due to the surrogacy friendly nature of these states.
You can also receive a referral fee by referring other surrogate mothers to CSP. You can receive $500 to $1000, depending on the state that the surrogate mom lives in.
