If you have an active Software Maintenance Service on your license, then you can upgrade to any version. If not you most likely need a new license.
In any case, for questions like this you're better off contacting Mathworks directly.

If you have an individual license, you may simply download, install and activiate MATLAB R2016b yourself. You can (and should at least for a while) keep the R2013b installation.
If you are part of a larger organization, your admin/IT will have the information you need.

Note that this requires that you or your company has paid for your licence through to that release or later.
Also to clarify: you will certainly need a different license file. Each licence file is release and host specific. License files are the keys that enable you to run software that you have licensed.
