I pressed the 'fix' tab on the screen and it takes me to the problem -- but I don't see how to correct the number.  help

FIX DEPENDENT SOCIAL SEC NUMBER

If you got an e-file reject email it means your return was rejected. The reason TurboTax still says “pending” is that there’s a high demand on our servers. To resolve this, you’ll need to check back at least 2-4 hours after receiving the rejected email.
 
But there’s no need to worry! Since you’ve already submitted your return before the deadline, you won’t get any penalties even if you fix it tomorrow. The IRS allows up to 5 business days after the tax file deadline for rejected returns to be corrected and re-filed.
