Go for the gold

Let’s go for the gold…Vitality gold, that is!

How did your first quarter go?! Are you crushing your goals? Or looking for a reset? Vitality is here for you no matter where you are on your journey. To maximize your points, make sure you check in frequently and submit points often. Remember, in addition to points for physical activity, you can get weekly points for goal check-ins, attending Bible studies and having your spouse do the same! Here are some additional ideas to add to your points plan!

Week 14

It’s never too early to plan for retirement. During the week of Spring Break, CUW had our Concordia Plans Retirement Rep/Financial Educator on site. If you attended one of the presentations offered by Laura Scheer, navigate to the points planner in Vitality, scroll to Financial Wellness and select the box for “Attend Live Presentation.” (If you attended via Zoom, that works too!) If you need assistance proving your attendance, let Sarah Gartman know and she can get a list of attendees from Laura!

Week 15

Spring has sprung (I mean…if not now…then when?!) Do you participate in a sports league? Did you know you can earn 350 points per league? To learn more, navigate to Resources/Guide to Vitality/Vitality Points/Physical Activity. There are dozens of types of sports leagues. See if yours qualifies!

Week 16

Part of your Retirement Readiness is keeping your beneficiary designations up to date. Earn 100 Vitality Points for updating your beneficiaries in two areas:

  • Concordia Retirement Savings Plan (CRSP) and
  • Concordia Disability and Survivor Plan(CDSP)/Accidental Death and Dismemberment/Supplemental Life. This is done in the Concordia Plans portal.

To receive Vitality Points, submit proof that your beneficiaries are current: a photo or scanned copy of your Fidelity Beneficiaries screen, Portal Beneficiaries screen or Beneficiary Allocations page

Week 17

Take a nutrition course. Vitality offers 6 online courses to choose from. You can receive points for 3 per year (and each course is worth 300 points). Learn how to eat for weight management, healthy eating in a modern world, or how to achieve a healthy balanced diet. It’s a great way to earn points while getting back to the basics of nutrition. Navigate to Resources/Health Resources/Nutrition Courses to get started.
