Stock issues for former EDS employees  (Updated March 29, 2018.)


Time to untangle your stock! Due to the breakup of HP, many have discovered that they have stock in more HP-related companies (as many as seven), located in more accounts, and with much less accurate cost basis values that they thought. You or your heirs could lose some of the stock or dividends as "abandoned" -- and you could wind up paying taxes twice on the same income. A team of HP Alumni volunteers has developed a step-by-step process to help you find all your stock, protectit from being treated as abandoned property, and prevent double taxation.

HPAA member advice:  HP paid $25.00 per share in cash. You should have received a check at the time. Either that -- or the money would have been turned over by now to a state unclaimed property department. See HPAA's page on How to check for lost stock and dividends
