If you are filing the return by mail and need the Federal copy of the W-2, it is available online through the myPay website at https://mypay.dfas.mil/. Your child will have to create an account and either download and send the form to you, or give you the user ID and Password.

I've attached sample screenshots from the website. My "menu" is a little different because I'm a retiree.

Are you filing electronically?

No, I have to mail it because I don't have the correct number from the W-2 from 2015.  Apparently I need that for a Security number before I can file it electronically
