You'll need to ask your employer to issue a corrected W-2. Your employer will give you a copy of the corrected W-2 (W-2C) and send a corrected copy to the Social Security Administration. 

Note: Employers are required to correct errors on Forms W-2 as quickly as possible. The penalty for filing an incorrect W-2 with the SSA increases over time. To avoid penalties, a Form W-2c is generally required within 30 days of becoming aware of an error.
