How does the Wellness Incentive payout work?

The Wellness Incentive includes a two-tiered payout: $50* in May upon completion and submission of Tier 1 by April 30, and $400* in October upon successful completion and submission of Tier 2 by September 30. To receive the incentive, you must be in an active pay status at the time of the final October payroll processes. If you terminate active employment with the university prior to the final May or October pay cycles, you will not receive the respective $50* and $400* incentives. Additionally, only those active employees who are the primary subscriber to a university medical insurance plan may receive the incentive earnings.

*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.
