    Your carrier is supposed to keep them on file for 6 months, you only need 8 days, or 15 if going into Canada, I keep mine for tax purposes and to verify experience, if needed in the future.

    O/O are offered the same procedures as the companies. They receive notice and provide them at the office of their operation. There is never a need to carry more than 2 weeks.
