Live Well Grinnell is pleased to support college employees in their pursuit of wellness by reimbursing 50% of their personal wellness expenses up to $300 ($150 maximum reimbursement) per fiscal year, as funds are available. Each year, we have expanded the range of what the wellness reimbursement covers. As of AY2013-2014, expenses may include (but are not limited to): memberships and event entry fees, athletic shoes and apparel, community supported agriculture shares, bicycles and helmets, pet adoption fees, massages, etc. If in doubt whether or not your purchase will qualify, please contact Jen Jacobsen, Wellness Director, at jacobsen[at]grinnell[dot]edu.
Please note the following submission guidelines:
Please staple your receipt to the form and send by campus mail to Jen Jacobsen in Athletics (please do not submit electronically.) Submit only one reimbursement form per fiscal year. You may want to save receipts until they total $300 and then submit. Reimbursement is not a separate deposit—it will be added to your paycheck, so be certain to check your paystub. The Wellness reimbursement is a taxable benefit, so the amount you are reimbursed will be less than the amount you request. Reimbursements will be processed in November, December, March, and June. Reimbursement requests must be received by the 10th of the month in order to be included in that month’s paycheck. The last reimbursements for the 2013-2014 fiscal year must be received no later than June 10, 2014.
