The IRS will not be able to go back that far (they say 6 years is the time you can get copies form them) so you will need to contact SSA.

SSA has copies back that far.

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)

I wanted to check back with you and see if you contacted SSA about those W2s you need.
