What is Vitality?
Vitality is a program that helps you live a longer, healthier life, and it is combined with a life insurance policy from John Hancock. Vitality rewards you for healthy living. It’s available in multiple different products and has different feature sets depending on what you are looking for.
What are Vitality Points?
Vitality Points are awarded to you after you complete educational, fitness, healthy living and/or preventive activities toward the achievement of your wellness goals. Different activities are worth more points than others. For example, you will earn 10 Vitality Points for completing a single workout at one of our partner health clubs. Your completion of an organized 5K walk or run is worth 250 Vitality Points. Your accumulated Vitality Points determine your Vitality Status. In addition, they can be redeemed for Vitality Bucks that you can use to “purchase” significantly reduced merchandise in the Vitality Mall.

Simply record your activities using our easy online tools and mobile app. You’ll then earn a Vitality Status (Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Platinum) based on the number of points you accumulate each year.
Enjoy rewards: On your policy anniversary, you can earn premium savings that reflect the status level you’ve achieved. And those savings can continue year after year when you lead a healthy lifestyle.
