Debian 8 LTS

Hi all! I'm running Debian 8. I don't have any valid reason to switch to Stretch, except for getting the security updates. According to this Jessie will be supported till June 30, 2020. My /etc/apt/sources.list look like this:

deb jessie main
deb jessie/updates main
deb jessie-updates main

My question is: will these mirrors get the LTS security updates till 2020 or do I have to switch to this other source.list?

Thanks for reaching out. The Linode mirrors, pull from upstream and will support a distribution until it is EOL. The security updates are set to pull directly from the repository.

I hope this answers your questions.
