Helping each other with life after HP and HPE. We have several moderated, email-based discussion forums. HPAA Benefits covers topics such as COBRA and retiree health benefits, annual enrollment, and transition to Medicare. HPAA Finance deals with employee stock, 401(k), pensions, and other personal finance issues from an ex-HP/HPE perspective. HPAA TechTalk members work together on HP/HPE-related personal technology questions.

Join us. If formerly a regular, direct U.S. employee of HP or HPE -- or are in the process of leaving. We also welcome others who could benefit from our updates and forums: spouses/partners, those receiving company benefits -- spouses/partners, dependents, DEC and EDS retirees -- and heirs with HP-related stock. No charge, thanks to HPAA's Supporting Members. Join at hpalumni.org/join

HP/HPE alumni news

Check your LinkedIn profile! Profiles were changed without notice. HPE changed many decades-old HP positions to HPE; LinkedIn deleted many employers. Recruiters and hiring managers view entries that don't make sense -- such as HPE employment before Nov 2015 -- as signs of a fake profile. You may wish to feature your EDS, Tandem, or other background. Step-by-step: hpalumni.org/LinkedIn

New HP Breakup Timeline shows each event as HP spawned Agilent, Keysight, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, HPInc, DXC Technology, Micro Focus, Perspecta... Each is a completely separate company. hpalumni.org/hptimeline

How many shares of which HP-related companies should I have? hpalumni.org/stock

Pension change. If you have been receiving monthly U.S. HP, DEC, or EDS pension payments that commenced on or before November 1, 2020 -- your pension is probably among the 41,000 converted from a company pension administered by Fidelity to an insured annuity provided by Prudential. Details: hpalumni.org/pension2021 If your pension is among those that were converted, Fidelity and Prudential indicate that you will receive two end-of-year statements -- from Fidelity, for the portion of the year they administered your pension, and from Prudential for the rest of the year. Must be mailed by Jan 31; were available online Jan 17.

"Potential Private Retirement Benefit" letter from Social Security. Look at the "Year Reported" and the "Type of Benefit." If "A" -- in the previous year, you rolled the assets into a different plan, bought an annuity, or took the cash. If "M" -- you left before vesting in that plan. How to investigate: hpalumni.org/PotentialBenefitLetter.

Time to untangle your stock! Depending on when and how you acquired stock, you may now have stock in up to six HP-related companies in various accounts -- or have missed cash payouts. An HPAlumniteam has developed a step-by-step process. hpalumni.org/stock
