Is it legal for employer not to pay health insurance for 2 months?

I transferred and the new agency lost my personnel action and has not paid premiums for 2 months. I asked if I could pay them and they said no, they have no record of the insurance.

They said there is a problem with the servicing office and there are employees with benefit and premium issues pending for 8 months

They said there is a problem with the servicing office and there are employees with benefit and premium issues pending for 8 months to a year.

When they eventually get it straight, I would have to pay a large lump sum right away (not in installments) of monthly premiums.

Is this legal??

Yes, this is legal. And, the IRS requires your employer to charge you for it, because hey, you HAVE the coverage.

Depends….was the money taken out of your check? If it was NOT, then it is legal because you received nothing and paid for nothing.

Better save up a bit.
