Most Egg Donors are compensated $7,500- $10,000 for their first egg retrieval (there are some donors that may receive a higher fee due to demand for certain qualities or ethnicities – so please ask us.)
In addition to the donor’s compensation, Recipient(s) pay for all of the Egg Donor's related fees, including medical expenses and travel, hotel and per diem. They also pay the Donor's compensation. Compensation is paid to the Egg Donor at the time of retrieval for her time and inconvenience rather than for the eggs. Women who donate feel tremendous gratification and are enabled to do many things with financial rewards given to them for performing their Egg Donor responsibilities.
* FYI, prior to January 2015, it wasn’t very clear whether or not donors had to pay tax on their compensation. However, a recent legal case, titled Perez v. Commissioner, 144 T.C. 4, (2015), shows that the tax court considers egg donor compensation as a taxable sum of money. Please contact a tax consultant to determine what portion of your payment should be sent to the U.S. government for taxes on your compensation. A4EDS cannot and does not give tax advise and all questions should be directed to tax professionals.
