I believe they are rated at a 30-yr shelf life. Unless they have been exposed to moisture, they should be fine. However, the older they are, the longer they will need to soak and cook.

I remember when I was young going to a themed cowboy dinner/show. They made a comment amongst the explanation of the meal by saying the gravel their driveway with the dry pinto beans then scoop them up as needed. Obviously a joke, but they made it clear beans were a cowboy staple because they last forever and need no care (ok other than moisture.)
