Haven't been able to login for 3 years since email address change

I haven't been able to login to AARP for 3 years since I changed my email address.  I get email to my new address but cannot use the website.  This has been "fixed" twice by phone tech support but the problem returned the next time I used my ID.  The computer does not recognize SMS codes on my phone to change the password or fix the email as being valid even when entered multiple times and new ones resent.

Would getting a totally new account help or should I just let my membership expire this year?  Any experience out there?  Thanks.
