Donor Compensation

Egg Donor Compensation

Women around the continent that donate their eggs make the impossible possible for those couples and individuals who cannot become parents. And for the generous gift of life, these women offer intended parents and provide financial support through egg donor compensation. As a new candidate for the procedure, you may have multiple questions about the procedure, like, "How much can I get paid for donating my eggs?" The answer to each question varies on many factors, but it is advantageous to get all the information before you begin your egg donation journey.

Your egg donation compensation check will be mailed to you within approx 5 business days of your retrieval. The compensation is for the time and inconvenience you have experienced during the cycle and not for the number of embryos you helped create. For most couples and prospective parents, the financial cost of the egg donation process can be the largest expense in their lifetime. Therefore you must take this process very seriously and commit yourself to this unforgettable and most rewarding experience of your life.

Thank you very much for your interest in helping others. Please do not hesitate to call, e-mail, or write to us. We will be very happy to answer any questions you might have related to egg donor pay or compensation.

Egg Donor Compensation - FAQs


Here are some frequently asked questions about egg donor compensation if you want to learn more about this procedure-


Question #1: Why Do People Pay Egg Donors?


While most women donate their eggs as an act to help others build a family, you do get generously compensated for your time and effort. People who have lost hope of having their child would do much more than pay compensation fees to the egg donors. It is a reward from them in the form of money for your selfless act that has given them a reason to think of a family again and make a huge difference in their lives. Although some women might not want to accept the payment openly, it is one way that the prospective parents can repay them in a meaningful way for the blessing an egg donor will provide them with.


Question #2: What are the Egg Donor Benefits and Covered Expenses?


The intended parents are responsible for handling and paying all the egg donor costs and expenses incurred during the egg donation cycle. You can adjust the benefits and covered expenses according to your case and requirements during the paperwork with your attorney and agree with the prospective parents. However, here are some basic egg donor benefits and expenses covered under the compensation-


  • Medical and psychological screening charges: 

These screenings are required for new egg donors and recommended for experienced ones. An egg donor can learn valuable information related to their genetic, physical, and reproductive health through these screenings.

  • Egg donor insurance: 

The egg donation process does not involve risks, but if complications arise, the intended parents will provide insurance to cover medical costs.

  • Attorney fees and other legal charges

All the legal costs will be taken care of by the prospective parents, and the egg donor will be provided a separate attorney to represent them.

  • Egg donor compensation: 

The agreed-upon amount the egg donor will receive once the eggs are retrieved falls under the egg donor compensation.

  • Other covered expenses: 

All other expenses for the egg donor and a companion are traveling fares, hotel room, meals, parking, and transit fare.


Question #3: Are Egg Donors Paid Each Time They Donate?


The egg donor is paid for every donation they make and can receive over $70,000 on completion of multiple egg donation cycles. The egg donor compensation can vary on several factors and is disbursed into two payments. The first $750 is transferred to the egg donor when the injectable medications start, and the remaining due amount is transferred when the egg retrieval procedure is completed. The fertility clinic has taken the eggs from the donor. However, it is crucial to note that the compensation amount agreed for each cycle remains the same and is not affected by the number of eggs retrieved from the donor.


Question #4: What is the Average Compensation Rates for Egg Donation?


The average egg donor compensation rates in America can range from $10,000-$40,000 per cycle. However, the rates are highly variable and can increase depending on the egg quality, desirable genetic features, synchronous over the asynchronous cycle, the total number of cycles you perform, or if the egg donor has completed a prior cycle.


Question #5: When Do Egg Donors Receive Their Compensation?


An egg donor will only begin her egg donation cycle when the payment has been successfully transferred into a trust account. Apart from this, the egg donor receives $750 from the total agreed-upon egg donor compensation when her doctor begins the injectable medications for her. The egg donor receives the remaining payment from the egg donor compensation within seven days from the egg retrieval. The payment can also be discussed when the surrogacy attorney of both parties is designing an agreement, and the egg donor will be paid similarly.


Question #6- How Much are Egg Donors Compensated from State to State?


The egg donor compensation depends on many factors, as discussed above. These factors are the total number of cycles, prior experience of the egg donor, desirable features, egg viability or quality, individual arrangements, the budget set by the prospective parents, and the experience of both parties during the egg donation cycle. The compensation amount also varies depending on the synchronous cycle's choice over the asynchronous cycle. The synchronous cycle is when the egg donor and surrogate mother cycles are synced using various hormones and medications. It can take longer than the asynchronous cycle, where the cycles are not synced, and the egg donor works independently of the receiver. The egg donor compensation can also vary depending on the demands of the procedure. For instance, you may get a higher egg donor compensation in California as the procedure is very much in demand. Additional costs may impact the overall egg donor compensation, like the legal fee that varies from state to state. However, most places do not get much difference in the rates.
