Annual Enrollment. We have searchable copies of the HP and HPE Enrollment Guides on the HPAA website. Many changes. Lots packed into the Enrollment Guides. Go through your Guide very carefully -- and mark it up. Even if you have a paper copy, much easier to use if you download the current copy and use Adobe Reader's search feature to find specific words or phrases. Download Enrollment Guides

Pension change. If you have been receiving monthly U.S. pension payments that commenced on or before November 1, 2020 -- your HP, DEC, or EDS pension plan may have been converted from a pension to an annuity, without changing the amount and terms of your benefits. Alumni report that the complete notification did not reach everyone affected. Details: Pension Transition
