    Mr. Olsen, My husband was let go by your company, NTB, on 2/16/2015. We have since found out that his insurance was terminated on 2/16/2015; the day he was let go. My husband has been trying to reach someone in HR by emailing and calling since 2/16/2015 for a letter; which is required by my employer (Grapevine-Colleyville ISD); stating his termination date and the termination date of his insurance-which was 2/16/2015.-in order to put them on my insurance. Without that letter I cannot put him and our children on my insurance. My husband and children (which are ultimately more important right now) are without insurance. If you have children you know this is a very scary scenario. No matter who we get on the phone they always pass it on to someone else; who is then unavailable. It is now 2/24/2015; meaning my children and husband have been without insurance since 2/16/2015. All I want is to get them on my insurance (which costs NTB nothing) but it requires a letter (stating his termination date of employment and insurance). A letter that requires 2-3 sentences at most. I am writing to you for help. It has been 8 days. When we contact benefits, they say we have to contact HR. When we contact HR, they say we have to contact benefits. I am terrified that something might happen that could cause financial ruin for us. We are not wealthy...we are just lower middle class trying to hang on. Any help you could give us would be great. If you get this and feel a need to help, my name is Julie Richardson and my phone number is: 818.542.9679. My email is: julie.richardson@gcisd.net Please help us. Have a Blessed day and thank you, Julie Richardson
