Get Paid to Stay Healthy
to US News and World Report, more employers are paying workers to take
a physical, get cancer screenings, eat well, exercise, and take better
care of themselves. Irene Gernon of Harrison, N.Y., pocketed $200 from
her employer, PepsiCo, in 2008 by completing a personal health
assessment and entering a smoking cessation program. She also avoided a
$600 surcharge on her health insurance by completing the antismoking
program. Gernon figures PepsiCo has paid her $500 in recent years to
eat healthfully and adopt other good habits.
in the recession, employers say offering financial incentives makes
sense. It can lower the rate of health insurance premium hikes. While
most large employers saw premiums rise 6 percent or more in 2008,
premiums at PepsiCo remained flat. If your employer offers insurance
ask them about reductions for you taking better care of yourself. It
may not surprise you but if you are in better health, the company saves
money, you feel better, and at the end of the year, you may have a
little extra jingle in your pockets for your efforts.
Want to ride for a good cause?
last year many of you know that Nike got a scooter to get around town
economically. You may have seen him and “Yellow Sunshine” smiling
together. Someone propose the notion of riding from one side of the
county to the other to raise funds for a good charitable endeavor and
well…just to have fun.
The problem is that we only know a small number of people with scooters
and is searching for a good cause to help raise funds for. If you know
of anyone that would like to participate even if they don’t have a
scooter or knows of some really worthy ideas please let him know. There
are no dates set but it will more than likely be in the warmer months.
This is your chance to do something noble as well as have a blest doing
