*Ethos periodically makes available certain performance challenges as an additional incentive to reward defined performance metrics by its direct third party agents and subcontractors ("Challenges"). Challenges are presented at the discretion of Ethos and are revokable by Ethos at any time—with or without prior notice—in its sole discretion. No Challenge reward is earned until the Challenge metric is completed in its entirety, and Ethos has confirmed in writing the agent's successful completion of such Challenge to Ethos' satisfaction, in its sole discretion.

A few things to keep in mind
  • Compensation grids vary. Refer to your contract or reach out to your account manager for your personalized compensation grid.
