How Texas Surrogate Compensation Works

Other agencies may present you with hard-to-follow surrogate compensation packages. We like to keep things simple. We divide your surrogate pay in Texas into two categories: base pay and additional surrogate compensation

We break down our surrogate compensation package below.

Base Pay for Surrogate Pregnancy in Texas

Your base pay is essentially your surrogate income. This is your money to spend however you’d like. Your base pay for surrogate pregnancy will be divided into equal payments and distributed over 10 months.

You’ll begin receiving your base surrogate pay when pregnancy has been confirmed by a medical professional. Your payments will be managed by an escrow company that we will coordinate with so you can be sure everything is done securely.

Before a pregnancy is confirmed you will also receive a monthly stipend for out-of-pocket expenses once you have signed your surrogacy contracts. You can receive this stipend up to 6-8 weeks after delivery.

Additional Surrogate Compensation in Texas

The second portion of your surrogate compensation package is the additional compensation you’ll receive for expenses such as:

  • Fertility medications

  • Embryo transfers

  • Travel and lodging costs

  • Lost wages (if any)

  • Third-trimester self-care

  • Legal fees

These are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what our surrogate compensation covers. Learn more about our additional surrogate compensation by reaching out to a surrogate specialist today.

Once a pregnancy is confirmed, you will start receiving your surrogacy compensation. This is spaced out over 10 months in equal payments. How much you get paid monthly will be determined by the agreed-upon surrogate base pay in your contract.

Do surrogates get paid if they miscarry in Texas?

If you miscarry during surrogacy, you will still be paid for the time you were pregnant. You will not receive your full surrogate compensation. It’s important to work with the parents after a miscarriage to determine if they want to move forward with the surrogacy process. If you decide to try again, your surrogate pay will resume when a pregnancy is confirmed.

Yes. FMLA guarantees that you will get maternity leave for your surrogate pregnancy. However, that does not mean this leave will be paid. This is decided by your employer. If any wages are lost due to your surrogate pregnancy, our surrogate compensation package will reimburse you.
