Table of n, a(n) for n=0..40.

EXAMPLE

a(9)=2 since we have the 9-step chain 2 -> 4 -> 8 -> 16 -> 22 -> 26 -> 38 -> 62 -> 74 -> 102.

MATHEMATICA

f[n_] := Length@ FixedPointList[ # + Times @@ IntegerDigits@# &, n] - 2; t = Table[0, {50}]; k = 1; While[k < 2300000001, a = f@k; If[ t[[a + 1]] == 0, t[[a + 1]] = k; Print[{k, a}]]; k++ ]; t (* Robert G. Wilson v, Jun 27 2010 *)
