Have the company and the state of Texas refused to give you a written explanation as to why your claim was denied?
Sounds very strange.
Post their written decision here at Free Republic when you get one.
I always learn new things when issues like this come up.
Called me on the phone (was working from home) at 5:00 p.m. to tell me. Didn't want to discuss it over the phone. Just done, you're gone.
