Stock. No one but you really cares about your employment-related stock. You may have had stock in up to seven HP-related companies. Your stock may not all be in the same place or be registered to your current postal address. You may need to retrieve lost stock, dividends, or cash payouts, find stray accounts, or estimate your cost basis. An HPAlumniteam has developed a step-by-step process to find and protect your stock.

Make sure that every company you ever worked for has your current postal address. Even if not classified by the company as a "Retiree" or if long gone -- in case of class-action settlements or other issues. Update address at former company

"Potential Private Retirement Benefit" letter from Social Security. The key word is "potential." It reports the most recent transaction in a benefit plan that you were once enrolled in. If both "Type" and "Frequency" are coded "A" -- it means that during the "Year Reported" you rolled the money into a different plan, or  bought an annuity, or took the cash. For details, or if coded otherwise, see Potential Benefit Letter.

Facebook. There are many independent company alumni social groups on Facebook -- reliving the good times, reconnecting with people you worked with, and memorializing those who have passed. Leading examples -- and how to find Facebook groups that match your career experience: Facebook groups for HP, successors, and predecessors
