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. For Fall 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, massages, etc. If in doubt whether or not your purchase will qualify, please contact Amanda Reckamp, Coordinator of Faculty and Staff Wellness at reckampa[at]grinnell[dot]edu.
The Wellness Reimbursement guidelines will be under review this semester and changes may happen for Spring 2015. In fairness, we will be granting reimbursements as they have been in the past for purchases from the start of this fiscal year until December 31st. Amanda Reckamp must receive these receipts no later than January 9th or the purchases will fall under the new guidelines.
Please note the following submission guidelines:
Please staple your receipt to the completed Reimbursement Form and send by campus mail to Amanda Reckamp in Athletics (please do not submit electronically). You may submit multiple receipts throughout the fiscal year. Receipts must be itemized. 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 at certain points during the year. The last reimbursements for the 2014-2015 fiscal year must be received no later than June 1, 2014.
It would be greatly appreciated if you submit a digital picture to Amanda participating or achieving a wellness goal for marketing/promotion involving Faculty and Staff Wellness. Just email them directly to reckampa[at]grinnell[dot]edu.
