Do SAT scores expire?

Do you need to have SAT scores from the same year that you apply to college? Or are the scores good for longer? Say, for example, I took the SAT junior fall and was satisfied with my score. Could I submit that score to colleges even though I didn't earn it within the application year?

SAT superscoring - is it worth it for a very small point increase?

I've taken the SAT twice. My first score was a 1520, and my second score was a 1580.

Is it worth it to send both of these scores to colleges so I have a higher superscore? Or...
