2012 health assessment now open
$150 to do Paperwork? Yes!
If you have ELCA-primary health coverage, take the 2012 Mayo Clinic Health Assessment on the EmbodyHealth web portal at www.elcaforwellness.org January 1 – April 30. Everyone that does the Assessment earns $150 in their personal wellness account to offset out-of-pocket medical costs. Plus if you log into the web portal or participate in some of the offered programs you can earn up to an additional $350.
If enough of us (65% of those covered) complete the Assessment before April 30 the congregations and ministries participating will receive a 2% discount on the health contributions paid on your behalf.
Instructions for taking the Assessment are available in the Understand My Benefits section at www.elcabop.org.
Have you shown your beneficiaries a little love?
It may not seem like it, but the simple act of filling out a form can be an act of love. That’s because in the event of your death a lot of time and energy can go into making claims and sorting out account ownership, especially when beneficiaries have not been named.
Save your family the unneeded stress and check your beneficiaries on your life insurance policies, bank accounts and retirement plan accounts.

What’s your credit score?
Credit scores can affect many areas of your life, including insurance rates, ability to borrow money and what interest rate you get on loans. If you want to get educated on what goes into your credit score and ways to improve your credit history, call Lutheran Social Service Financial Counseling for help reviewing your credit report.
