How to Become a Paid Surrogate in Austin

 Becoming a surrogate shouldn’t be difficult. That’s why we’ve streamlined our process. You can complete our easy surrogate application form in just a few minutes!

Step 2: Complete Basic Screening and Match with a Family

Next, the screening process will help you determine whether surrogacy is a safe and healthy option for you and your family. This screening ensures the safety of you and the baby you’re carrying by verifying that you’re physically prepared for surrogate pregnancy.

Once you’ve completed our screening, we’ll help you find your surrogacy match. We use a mutual matching system, so we know that you and the family are excited about each other.

Step 3: Become Pregnant

When you meet the family you are excited to help, you can begin IVF, which means an embryo will be transferred to your uterus via IVF, and you can begin receiving compensation.

Not only is this the point when you receive compensation, it is also an exciting milestone that you get to share with the family you help. This is the moment where they can begin to see their dreams come to life in you.

Surrogate mothers deserve to be compensated because of the incredible impact they can have on a family who needs their help.

Is Paid Surrogacy Legal in Texas?

Do Surrogates Get Paid if They Miscarry?

When a surrogate miscarries, she still receives compensation up until the point of the miscarriage, then compensation ends. If the surrogate and intended parents want to try again to conceive, IVF can be restarted and the surrogate can be compensated again once the pregnancy begins.

Is Surrogate Money Taxed in Austin?

Because surrogate pay is a form of income, it is subject to taxation if you receive a 1099 MISC form. The Lone Star state does not have a local or state income tax, so would only pay federal income taxes on your surrogate pay.

If you don’t receive a 1099 form, you should consult your surrogacy specialist or a local tax accountant to ensure you have all the appropriate information.

How are Surrogates Compensated?

Surrogates are compensated through an escrow account, and can receive compensation before, during, and shortly after pregnancy.
