It would be pretty unethical for an employer to refuse to provide you with a proper answer to the aforementioned request - one reportable, and potentially actionable, by OPMC.
A concern related to participating status is the nature of participation - do you participate by way of an individual contract putting you in direct nexus with a third party payor, or are you participating through the employer's tax ID?
