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. That’s why Workday offers a range of benefits, from pregnancy support to new-parent resources and help with returning to work. And, if your family-building journey includes fertility treatment, surrogacy, or adoption, Workday will provide $25,000 to help you.

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 Workmates a lifetime allowance of $25,000 for costs related to fertility, adoption, and surrogacy.

To get started, compare your family planning support options.


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

Claim a full $25,000

We reset the lifetime benefit counter to $0 for all U.S. Workmates on January 1, 2022, even if you already used some Workday fertility benefits in the past.


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 or 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
