EOBs — Drowning in Paperwork!

By Terry Savage on April 29, 2024 | Wild Card

Dear Ms. Savage, How long should I keep Medicare and Blue Cross/Blue Shield EOBs? My husband is 93, and I am 87. We are drowning in paperwork. Thank you for helping.

Hah!  You picked the wrong person to ask!  I just looked down at one of my filing drawers and I have a very FAT folder with all my EOBs!  They date back to 2018!  You embarassed me into shredding the oldest ones.  You don’t need them now — Just keep the previous year.  Thanks for the nudge!-
