BBC, do you know the most efficient and cheapest way of having a working US mobile number more or less permanently on international roaming here in Singapore?

Many moons ago, I or someone else had asked a similar question and the consensus I think had been getting a Google Voice number. I have that and that works through the Hangouts app for making calls to or receiving calls from people in the US and receiving text messages from folks in the US.

HOWEVER - suddenly within the past 6 weeks a bunch of my financial institutions are saying that they don't recognize the (Google Voice) number as a mobile number in their records and need me to update.

Any advice?

I have a SSN and will be traveling there albeit temporarily soon. I have a shipping address (actual, not PO box or virtual) there as well. I'm not sure I want to shell out US$30-40 per month just for this, but it would be good to know if there are options. Thanks so much!!
