After working for a company for over four years, I resigned

After working for a company for over four years, I resigned for personal and health in Jan 2016. Before resigning, I contacted the company's HR department and asked how the Profit Sharing Retirement Plan vested balance would be transferred or paid out. HR told me it takes a full tax year for the Profit Sharing Management Company to conclude that I was no longer an employee. At that point, the Profit Sharing Management Company would contact me and arrange a transfer or paid out. I trusted the HR staff information. I waited until Feb 2017. I contacted HR again telephone and left a message regarding this issue. HR did not return my call. I followed up a week later with an email (letter) to HR. They still did not return my request for action nor contact me. One week later I called HR again, a HR person answered the phone and verbally promised that would have the HR Profit Sharing Plan company expert contact me as soon as possible. I waited three week. No one has called me. The money is the plan is relatively small but I feel it belongs to me. My last statement of benefits from 12/31/2015 shows an ending balance of $3,597.66 with an vested balance of $2,878.13. What can be done?
