Company retroactively cancelled insurance after I quit and kept premiums. What agency do I contact?
Contact EDD (the California Employment Development Department) to complain that your pay was withheld improperly. Be aware that most of EDD's staff is tied up with unemployment related issues and they have only limited resouces available for everything else. Contact the federal Department of Labor to complain about the ERISA violation (cancelling the insurance retroactively to before your end date without a valid reason).

Aetna thru Ball Aerospace was responsible for having my disability and my insurance health coverage dropped and also was responsible for having me "involuntarily terminated" from my job because of their "over the phone" examination. I was terminated from my position at Ball Aerospace while I was on disability leave and was at the time considered an full time employee.

i just saw a story online for something that happened in the Chicago-land area.... the guy got arrested and it's not looking so good for him. http://mchenrycountyblog.com/2011/05/06/crystal-lake-businessman-arrested/ he didn't send medical insurance premiums deducted from his employee's checks to the medical carriers and then coverage was canceled.... and he used the money to pay for other things for the failing business.

I agree. You complain to the Labor Board. But, you also need to make sure that you weren't suppose to sign up for insurance effective January 1 and failed to do so. That would be your error. Either way, you're correct. They can't keep your premium AND not give you coverage.

never heard of that happening - you should have been covered thru Feb 28th and yes, if they DID cancel you @ 12/31 - you should get your portion of that premium back (less taxes if your contributed pre-tax) you may have to sue that employer
