The issue with the app and website is, the app locks me out because it doesn't recognize my active password, then doesn't recognize my username when I try to reset it, which is the same as I've had for several years. Then when I try to access the site from the already updated browser on my phone, it says I have to have an updated browser on my "computer". If you try to call them, no one answers, and their AI message center doesn't answer questions. There's no way to contact a human! 😡😡😡😡😡

This app is HORRIBLE. For the last 4 weeks it keeps saying there is a system error and it won't even let me log in. Ridiculous. It will NOT allow me to make a new password for my account either. Nothing. It's a useless app. UPDATE: It's been another month and it STILL doesn't work. You guys said it was a system glitch but it's been "glitching" every single day for months on end. This app is a joke. I'm going to have to switch to paper forms through mail since I can't even log in online. Sad

We suffered a glitch but it is now fixed. Be sure to update to the latest version and re-login. Let our customer care team know at YourTexasBenefits-App@hhsc.state.tx.us if you continue to face problems.

The app maybe will work 1 out of 20 times. The fingerprint login never works. Even after entering user name and password manually, the load screen starts and stay that way until I give up and cancel the operation. And to top it off, the web page won't load either! It's pretty sad that I can get my balance through another company's app but not from the app that my benefits are provided through.
