How Does Missouri Surrogate Compensation Work?

Base Pay for Surrogate Pregnancy in Missouri

The base pay for surrogate pregnancy in Missouri is meant to reflect your service as a surrogate. You will need to speak with your surrogacy specialist about what your goals are for this compensation as you prepare to match with a family. Your base pay for surrogacy is yours to spend however you want.

You’ll receive your base pay in 10 equal payments, distributed over the course of 10 months. An escrow company from our network of professionals will handle your payments so that you have one less thing to worry about.

This payment can be life-changing for you and your family, offering a way to pay off debt, put a down payment on a home or create memorable experiences with your children.

There are many costs that come up when you begin your surrogacy process. These include:

  • Embryo transfers

Our surrogate compensation package will reimburse you for all of these expenses and more so that you have everything you need to have a successful surrogacy journey.

Commonly Asked Questions about Missouri Surrogate Compensation

Do surrogates get maternity leave in Missouri?

If your job offers maternity leave or falls in line with the company requirements for FMLA, you can expect a maternity leave. However, not all companies offer a compensated maternity leave. If you are losing income due to surrogacy, you can work out this additional surrogate pay when you create your surrogacy plan and contract.

Do surrogates get paid if they miscarry?

It’s extremely unfortunate when a surrogate miscarries, but it’s important to understand how the process may work. Surrogates are paid up until the point they miscarry. So if you are pregnant for three months and then miscarry, you will be paid for that time. However, you will need to work out a plan with the parents to determine if everyone wants to move forward with the surrogacy process.

When do I start getting paid as a surrogate and how often?

Surrogates can expect to begin receiving compensation after they have had a confirmed pregnancy. Once this happens, surrogates are paid in 10 monthly installments.

Do I need surrogate insurance coverage?

No, you do not need to find your own surrogate insurance coverage. If your plan does not cover surrogate pregnancies, we will help you find a policy that does.
