How does a two-cycle incentive work? Can I complete only Cycle 1?

For each Wellness Incentive year, you can choose your participation level. Choose to complete Cycle 1, Cycle 2 or both; however, you may only earn points toward a cycle during the time periods indicated on the Wellness Incentive webpage.

To earn the payout for a cycle, you must complete and submit 225 points in healthy activities. There will be no pro-rated incentives for completing part or some of the activities in a cycle; it is all or nothing. If you complete more than 225 points in Cycle 1 or 2, the maximum amount of payout will still be $225*.

*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.
