Customer Question

This is not a tech question. I have tons of outdated paper material. How far back should I keep it. Do I just keep the current year or should I go back a couple of years.?

What type of documents would these be?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
These are not legal documents. They are reports sent out from the benefit office, updating your benefits, etc.

From an employer's HR department, for example, dealing with insurance benefits and such?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes, that is correct.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No, I don't need a phone call. Just a simple answer. Keep or throw away.

Relate back to my original question.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Never mind. I didn't know this took an act of congress to get a simple answer. Thanks for your help.
Expert:  legalgems replied 1 year ago.
To give an accurate answer it would depend on the classification of the paper, unfortunately.
