Electronically Filing Your Annual W2 Wage Report
SSA encourages employers to submit their W-2/W-2C reports electronically over the Internet.  The benefits of electronic filing include an extended due date, electronic receipt, ability to track W-2/W-2C reports, and it's paperless.

The first step in filing electronically is registering for a User ID and Password
To register go to: http://www.ssa.gov/bso/bsowelcome.htm

To learn more about filing W2s electronically go to:

Social Security Number Verification Service (SSNVS)
The employee's name and social security number reported on the W-2 must match the information contained in Social Security's records.  This will ensure Social Security properly credits the wages to the correct employee.  Social Security offers to employers a free verification service called SSNVS.
