How Much do Surrogates Get Paid?

The average agency-managed, first time, baseline surrogate compensation in the USA is $33,423. In California, that number increases to $39,000.


Many factors determine surrogate compensation including local state supply and demand.


Experienced surrogates (i.e., surrogates who have completed previous surrogacy journeys) earn ~$5,000-$10,000 more for each journey completed. In addition, surrogates earn a bit more (~$5,000 – $10,000) if they carry multiples.
