What you need to know

There are many paths to creating a family—and each comes with a range of emotions. Plus, there’s a lot to plan for and think about, like how to get the best medical care, what to expect when bringing home a newborn, and how to balance it all. To help, Workday offers a range of family benefits, from fertility, family planning, and pregnancy support, to new-parent resources (for mums and dads) and help with returning to work.

Fertility, adoption, and surrogacy support

Having a baby yourself is not the only way to expand your family. Workday supports every path to parenthood, every step of the way. That’s why we offer a lifetime allowance of $25,000 for costs related to fertility, adoption, and surrogacy.


Your $25,000 lifetime allowance can be used for eligible fertility expenses, including:

  • In vitro fertilization (IVF) and intrauterine insemination (IUI)
  • Extraction, freezing, storage, and thawing of embryos, eggs, and sperm
  • Pre-implementation genetic testing and screening


Covered surrogacy expenses include:

  • Gestational carrier and agency fees and surrogacy insurance
  • Extraction and other medical costs related to IVF and impregnation of the surrogate
  • Egg/sperm extraction, shipping, transport, and donor compensation fees
  • Pre-implementation genetic testing and screening
  • Parent, child, and family counseling


These adoption costs count toward your $25,000 allowance:

  • Application, home study, agency, and placement fees
  • Legal fees, court costs, and adoption insurance
  • Immigration, immunization, and translation fees
  • Transportation, meals, and lodging
  • Parent, child, and family counseling

Maven Wallet

Using Maven Wallet, you can easily upload receipts for eligible expenses and then be reimbursed through Workday payroll. Reimbursements are taxable.
