Plan ahead: End of support for Microsoft 2013 products (18-month reminder)

On April 11, 2023, some important Microsoft products will reach their end of support, which includes:

After this date, these products will no longer receive security updates, non-security updates, bug fixes, technical support, or online technical content updates. If you are still using these versions after April 11, 2023, you may face increased security risks and compliance issues over time. Therefore, we strongly recommend that customers running legacy versions migrate to Microsoft 365.


Transitioning to Microsoft 365 has numerous business benefits (e.g.: Improved collaboration and communication, reduced user downtime, improved security and compliance, among others), and allows organizations to remain supported. Upgrading to the always up-to-date Microsoft 365 suite is easy. Here are some resources to help plan the move:

 There will not be an option to extend support for any of the products listed in this article beyond April 2023.


While Microsoft 365 is the world's productivity cloud that provides unique tools to stay productive, we also realize some devices aren't ready to migrate. In our commitment to supporting all our customers, we recently launched Office's latest perpetual version, Office Long-Term Servicing Channel (LTSC), designed for devices that can’t accept feature updates or aren’t connected to the internet.
