Hello, I'm Robin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now and typing up my reply. I'll post that in just a few moments.
The IRS can supply copies for the past 6 years so they cannot assist.
The Social Security Administration can give you copies/printouts of your Forms W-2 for any year from 1978 to the present.
When you write to SSA, be sure to include:
Send your request with a check or money order payable to the Social Security Administration (the copy is free if your need is for Social Security purposes only). Please include your Social Security number on the check or money order. You also can pay with a credit card by completing Form-714. Regular credit card rules apply.
Please send your request to:
Social Security AdministrationOffice of Central OperationsDivision of Earnings and Business ServicesP.O. Box 33003
The above is a direct link to the form.
Please let me know if you need clarification. If you do not then a positive 5 star rating is appreciated so I get credit for the response. (look for the STARS or SMILEY FACES)
