20 companies that offer great fertility benefits

Being a parent is often described as the most rewarding life experience. Unfortunately, though, infertility impacts one-in-eight Americans, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s national survey of family growth.

To help, people often turn to costly fertility treatments, such as in-vitro fertilization (IVF), in which an embryo is created in a lab and then transferred into the body. The cost of one IVF cycle can run an average of $23,474—but it usually takes more than one cycle to work, according to Fertility IQ, a fertility information and doctor evaluation website. Typically, by their estimates, total IVF treatment costs about the same as an average full year’s salary of $51,000.

While that price tag is sure to make anyone cry like a baby, you shouldn’t give up your dream of being a parent. Recently, Fertility IQ released its second-annual Family Builder Index, which ranked companies based on the accessibility and comprehensiveness of their IVF benefits.

More than 250 U.S. employers offer a fertility benefit this year—a 10% increase from 2016. The technology sector provides the most coverage overall, but you’ll also find consulting and accounting, banking and finance, fashion, and media companies providing great coverage, too. While companies including Bain, Boston Consulting Group, Chanel, Bank of America, Spotify, and Ropes and Gray tout their “unlimited” coverage, others, such as Unilever, News Corporation, Gates Foundation, and Facebook, don’t require any kind of pre-authorization, making their benefits super easy for any employee to access, especially lesbian, gay, and single workers.

Check out below which employers provide the most generous IVF coverage to see if a job at one of these companies would be a good fit for you—and your future family. And you’ll be happy to know that several of these are also considered the best companies for working moms and working dads!
