When Do Egg Donors Receive Their Compensation

Egg donors will not begin receiving injectable medications until all funds have been deposited by the intended parents into the trust account. The donor will receive $750 of the total donor compensation when she begins injectable medication, and will receive the remaining balance of the compensation due within 7 days after egg retrieval.

How much are egg donors compensated from state to state?

Every egg donation case is unique and involves many factors that can impact the overall payment. The average amount of compensation can range from $5,000 to $10,000 plus expenses, depending on experience and the individual arrangements. In states like California, where egg donors are in high demand, donors may be paid slightly higher. Legal requirements and the costs of other services can also vary from state to state. However, the amount egg donors are paid doesn't vary greatly between cities like Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and Houston.
