What to do if my ex-employer refuses to give information to the government which is costing me needed benefits?

Question Details:

I was receiving food stamps from the state. I was employed when I applied. About 5 months ago I lost my job. I got a letter saying that I had to renew my case. I did the phone interview and sent all the papers needed. My previous employer had to fill out a form of my employment there. I faxed the form numerous times. They will not fax the form back to my local office. Now my case is being terminated due to "failure to cooperate in verification" of my previous employment. Do I have a case against my former employer? It is stressing me out mentally.
