    my getline funtion is not working?

    It just skips to the next cout...
    Code:
    
    #include <iostream>
    #include <cstdlib>
    #include <string>
    using namespace std;
    
    // SavingsAccount class definition
    class SavingsAccount
    {
    private:
       int accountType;
       string ownerName;
       long ssn;
       double accountClosurePenaltyPercent, accountBalance;
    
    public:
       void initializeMembers()
       {
         
          
          cout << "Please enter Account Type ( 1, 2, or 3 ): ";
          cin >> accountType;
          cout << "\nPlease enter owner's name: ";
          getline(cin, ownerName);
          cout << "\nPlease enter owner's SS number without dashes: ";
          cin >> ssn;
          cout << "\nPlease enter Accout Closure Penalty Percent: ";
          cin >> accountClosurePenaltyPercent;

    This is a common problem that has already come up twice in the last two days...

    cin.getline not pausing function so user can enter input???

    The solution is the same for your problem as in that thread.
