Understanding Egg Donor Compensation

What is involved in an egg donor’s compensation is one of the first questions asked by donors and intended parents. Intended parents are fully within their rights to know what the donor compensation will cover, and donors deserve to know what they are responsible for and when their compensation will be received.

How much can an egg donor be compensated?
Typically, an egg donor’s compensation will range between $5,000 and $10,000. Donors who have successfully completed prior egg donation cycles or those with exceptional qualities may receive higher compensation. For example, intended parents of specific racial backgrounds may seek an egg donor of the same background.

Are egg donors responsible for any cost(s)?
No, as an egg donor you will not be expected to contribute to any fee. Your expenses are paid, including medical costs, egg donor insurance, attorney fees, travel expenses and, of course, compensation. For donors who have to travel, covered travel fees include airfare for you and a traveling companion, hotel accommodations (shared room), ground transportation and up to $100 per diem.

When will a donor receive her compensation?
Donor compensation is mailed to the donor post-cycle once physician clearance has been given.

How can an egg donor help an intended parent make a decision?
Intended parents are able to view the profiles of egg donors who are registered via an agency’s database. The information provided on an egg donor profile is what intended parents will use to determine whether an egg donor is the right fit for their growing family. When filling out a profile, it’s important that donors offer as much information as possible to assist in this process. Donors will be asked about their physical characteristics, medical histories, education, career, hobbies and interests.

Filling this information out completely can speed the matching process, as it will give intended parents a better idea of the potential donor, which means a match can be made more quickly, the cycle can begin and end sooner, and compensation can ultimately be received.
