How does a two-tiered incentive work? Can I complete only Tier 1?

Since there are two tiers, you can choose your participation level. You do not have to complete Tier 1 before starting Tier 2 activities; however, you must complete and submit all of Tier 1 in order to earn the Tier 2 payout.

To earn the $400* for Tier 2, you must complete and submit at least 400 points in healthy activities. There will be no pro-rated incentives for completing part or some of the activities in Tier 2; it is all or nothing. If you complete more than 400 points in Tier 2, the maximum amount of payout will still be $400*.

*Incentive earnings are taxed and voluntary retirement earnings are deducted, just like any other university earnings. The amount of taxes deducted will differ depending on the individual.
