Not receiving verification code emails new Yahoo mail

After transitioning to yahoo mail, Social security.gov verification emails are not received on the web nor my desktop app.  Yahoo tech blamed the government, while I think the SSA probably could tell the .cox was funneled into a yahoo or something.  It also happened I didn't receive an employers verification code, so not a single sender.  It was all smooth when it was only cox.net.  Any help figuring this out would be great, I have seen other threads on the web about this exact issue but no resolution yet.

    This whole transition from Cox to Yahoo is a mess.  I'd suggest, at least for now, getting an email address via Gmail, and use that address for your SS and other employer's codes.  We switched everything over to Gmail, and it's so efficient!  I'm getting all my verification codes just fine, including my bank.
