HP Retirement Plans

Advice and reference info from members. (Updated March 6, 2018.)  Questions or comments to: info@hpalumni.org

Classification as "retired." If you left at 55 or older with at least 10 years of service -- or left after 2010 with age-plus-years-of-service of at least 80 -- HPI generally classifies you as "retired." This is reported to outside payroll and employment verification services. It is likely that HPE also uses the same criteria, but that has not been confirmed. To determine if you have any retiree benefits, contact the appropriate company: HP and HP Inc (HPI) contacts   Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) contacts

See Which Company am I a former employee or retiree of? HPI, or HPE, or multiple companies?
