My husband gets paid every 2 weeks. I would like to know do they divide his health insurance payment between the 2 checks. It says per month on his paper work.
Yes, the premiums will be divided. As mentioned in the comments, there are only 2 scenarios that make sense for employees that are paid biweekly:
- The amount deducted from the first 2 paychecks each month is exactly half of the monthly premium. In months with a 3rd paycheck there is no premium taken out.
- The amount deducted from every paycheck is exactly: (Monthly Premium * 12) / 26
If you have a paycheck (or stub) handy, you should be able to see which method they are using. If it's not one of those two then I'd recommend calling HR to find out how they calculate it (and then let us know because it is probably an abnormal calculation).
