HPAA member advice:
Selling HPQ shares online is still possible at https://www.stockplanconnect.com . However, selling HPE shares can only be done by calling 1-800-367-4777 or 1-801-617-7414.
To transfer your HPQ shares (and your corresponding new HPE shares) to another financial institution at no charge, you can either:
- Go to https://www.stockplanconnect.com and download the stock transfer forms for faxing to Morgan Stanley -- or
- Send an email to email@example.com -- you will immediately receive a "deleted without reading" autoreply and, later, a personal reply with instructions and forms.

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 the unclaimed property department of the state for the last address they had for you. It is a good idea anyhow to search for unclaimed property annually on the official site of the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators: http://www.naupa.org
