We want to support you in expanding your family, so you can worry less about finances and focus more on the joys of being a parent. Intuit’s surrogacy assistance program helps you with eligible expenses associated with lawful surrogacy arrangements. This benefit is taxable income and will be reported on your Form W-2 as taxable wages.
Who is Eligible?
To participate in the surrogacy assistance program, you must be:
- A regular employee scheduled to work 20+ hours per week, or a SelectTime employee
- Employed by Intuit at the time the expenses were incurred, substantiated and approved
Note: If your spouse/domestic partner works at Intuit, only one of you is eligible to submit expenses for reimbursement.
How It Works
Intuit will reimburse you up to a total of $30,000 per child and up to a lifetime maximum of two children up to $60,000 (not to exceed $30,000 per child) for qualifying expenses that you’ve incurred (and are nor otherwise reimbursable) resulting in a fully completed and lawful surrogacy contract. A fully completed surrogacy contract is one that results in you being recognized as the parent of a child on a birth certificate, court order of adoption or post-birth court order recognizing your parental rights under applicable law and does not violate any state, local or federal laws.
To submit a reimbursement request, follow these steps:
- Complete the Surrogacy Assistance Program Reimbursement Request Form within six months of the date of birth or the date in which you assume parental rights of the child. Be sure to include details surrounding each expense, as well as invoices/receipts and proof of payment.
- Submit the form and supporting documentation to HR Connect.
If further requests or documentation is needed, your HR Connect advisor will reach out to you directly. If your request is approved, you will be notified by the HR Connect advisor and the reimbursement will be paid out within two pay periods of approval. Any and all decisions with regards to reimbursement are final and binding.
- Any and all medical expenses related to the surrogacy, including screening, testing, evaluations, drugs, retrieval, storage, insemination, IVF, prenatal care, delivery, post-natal care (some or all of these may be covered under the surrogate mother’s medical plan or your medical plan depending on the service being provided)
- Expenses paid directly to the surrogate mother (these should be through a bona fide agency)
- Surrogacy expenses without a valid surrogacy contract or in violation of applicable law
- Short-term disability or insurance expenses for the surrogate
- Expenses reimbursed under Intuit’s adoption assistance program or any other Intuit benefit plan or program
- Any expenses reimbursed to you by any other entity, including under another employer plan or program, governmental program, or service (e.g., legal fees covered by a pre-paid insurance program or your spouse’s employer reimbursement program)
