Can payroll deductions be reimbursed back to meif theyshould not have been taken out of my pay check?

I work as a community based counselor for a for profit provider. I was employed full-time then went to part-time status in 06/10. While I was discussing my taxes, it was brought to my attention there were deductions being taken out of my paycheck. I thought I had enrolled in a 401-k but there were no deductions on my W-2. Come to find out the deductions were for life insurance that part time employees are not eligible for. Can I request a refund for the deductions that were taken out of my paychecks since last 06/02?

But if you only went part time in June of 2010 why would you want to be reimbursed from June of 2002?  From the way that you have phrased the question it appears that you were full time then and that the deduction was proper?  Did you leave out another portion of the question that relates to other deductions?  As to the money taken out since June of 2010 I think that yo have an argument for reimbursement.  Maybe you would want to ask if they can take the money that you already paid out anyway and place it in the 401K for your benefit that would be a plus.  I am assuming that the life insurance money was taken out pre-tax so you are going to have to be a bit concerned about reimbursement.  Check it out.  Good luck.
