Retiree "Gold Badge"

Advice and reference info from members.

Does not provide site access. Useful for discounts at some local businesses. (Traditionally, a retiree gold badge allowed for unescorted access to most HP sites. This was not the policy at companies that HP acquired; worked only at sites with staffed lobbies; and was based on the assumption that HP retirees are fully retired from the industry. Since 2007, HP has required that all visitors be escorted by a current employee. This protects the former employee, any post-HP employers, and HP from potential legal issues.)

Details and links:
- If you are classified as a HPI retiree, details are here https://www.hpcontinuum.com/gold-badge on the official "HP Continuum" password-protected retiree website.
- If classified as a HPE retiree, details are on the HPE retiree website: https://www.hpe.com/us/en/about/jobs/retiree/Benefit.html
