Insurance.

Various types of insurance -- such as life, auto, and group legal plans -- are marketed by third parties to employees and retirees using company facilities and employee benefits communication channels. These are not actual benefit programs. The company makes no contribution to the cost of the plans and is not a party to the transactions.

Group Legal Services. Member feedback from HPAA Benefits Forum discussions.

$5,000 employee/retiree life insurance. The amount had not changed in decades. HP and Agilent both dropped the death benefit in 2010.
