Illinois Surrogacy Program Benefits
Our Illinois surrogacy program is the number one choice for intended parents and surrogates. For starters, the agencies founders were previously intended parents. They treat everyone who encounters them with the utmost of respect and understanding. Most other reputable agencies are run by doctors and attorney who aren’t adept with the unique people skills needed to provide quality customer-oriented service. In addition the entire team is comprised of former surrogates and egg donors who have been through multiple surrogacy journeys of their own over the years. Overall, you will be very satisfied to have Golden Surrogacy as your friend and advocate.
Illinois Surrogacy Laws
Fortunately, Illinois is among the top tier of states in the country with very favorable surrogacy laws. The passage of the Gestational Surrogacy Act in 2005 has paved the way for many intended parents and surrogates to have a smooth process. To take advantage of the laws and protections of Illinois, only the surrogate must live in Illinois and give birth in Illinois. The Location or residency of the intended parents does not impact the outcome. This allows for many intended parents who reside in non-friendly states to match with an Illinois Surrogate to fulfill their surrogacy journey.
Compensation for Illinois Surrogate Mothers
Average Inexperienced Surrogate: $28,000 – $30,000 base
Average Experienced Surrogate: $30,000 – $35,000+ base
We provide our Surrogates the best compensation available, based on their prior success & experience. Intended Parents pay the Surrogate’s legal fees, medical bills, mileage to and from doctors/lab appointments, childcare for doctor/ lab appointments, lost wages, airfare, hotel accommodations, and a meal allowance for out of town travel for Surrogate and their companion and other expenses as detailed in your agreement.
**A Surrogate’s compensation will also depend on whether she carries a medical insurance policy that does NOT have a surrogacy exclusion.
