Be in the Know Bonus Actions

Lady Stretching

Bonus Actions are health-related activities and opportunities to support your overall well-being, as well as earn additional points towards your next reward level. Be in the Know continues to offer a wide variety of options, including Preventative Health, Penn Wellness Activities, and Virgin Pulse Online Bonus Actions.

Review the Ways to Earn list for options, with rewards for daily activities, completed programs, and sustained achievement throughout the year.

How It Works:

  • Choose any Bonus Actions you wish to complete from the Ways to Earn list. 
  • Earn up to $250 in Pulse Cash by completing any combination of campaign activities.
    • Reach 5,000 total points = Earn another $50 (Level 1 reward)
    • Reach 15,000 total points = Earn another $75 (Level 2 reward)
    • Reach 30,000 total points = Earn another $125 (Level 3 reward)
    • Reach 50,000 points = Earn VIP recognition (Level 4 reward)
      Go for ultimate rewards and earn 50,000 campaign points to become a Be in the Know  VIP! All confirmed VIPs will earn special recognition, after the campaign year ends.

Bonus Actions may be completed at any time during the campaign year (July 1, 2022 - June 30, 2023). However, the biometric screening is a prerequisite for this year’s Pulse Cash earnings.

    Attestation Forms

    Make sure you receive your Bonus Action points for vital wellness activities --such as vaccinations, annual physicals, or the Penn Comprehensive Smoking Treatment Program--by submitting an Attestation Form. These forms allow participants to upload completion information for certain Bonus Actions right on the Virgin Pulse platform Rewards page.

    All Attestation Forms will include an Attestation Box for participants to click to acknowledge that the information provided is true and accurate. You may also need to upload documentation as proof of completion. (Penn reserves the right to request a paper copy of any information you provide.)

    To access the Attestation Forms:

    • Log on to the Virgin Pulse platform.
    • On the homepage, in the top navigation, go to "Home" and click on "Rewards."
    • Scroll down to the appropriate Bonus Action you wish to complete, such as "Receive a Bi-Annual Dental Cleaning/Exam."
    • This will open up a window for you to complete the form.
    • Fill in all of the required fields and upload documentation as directed.
    • Click “Submit.”

    *Per IRS guidelines, all Be in the Know rewards are subject to applicable payroll taxes at the time they are earned and rewarded to participants - even if rewards have not yet been redeemed (i.e., spent). While the rewards are provided through Virgin Pulse's Rewards Program, mandatory payroll taxes on the value of earned rewards will be processed through participants' paychecks. For the 2022-2023 campaign year, taxes will be processed in October 2022, and January, April, and July 2023 paychecks. Participants will see applicable rewards taxes deducted from their paychecks in these months, if rewards were earned during the prior time period. Paystubs will note "Imputed Income: Wellness" plus the amount of earned rewards for that particular tax cycle. 

    Your privacy is strictly protected. Penn receives only aggregated data for the participating population. Penn will never know your individual screening results, health assessment answers or personal health goals.
