Contacts for former HP, HPI, HPE employees (And DEC and EDS retirees)

Advice and reference info from members. (Updated November 9, 2017.)  Questions or comments to: info@hpalumni.org

Stock options: You need your company W-2 if you exercised any options during the year -- even if you did not work for the company during that year. (You will also get a 1099-B from the broker. You need both documents for every option exercise.)  How to obtain your annual W-2 or final Earnings Statement: http://www.hpalumni.org/W-2-rev3

Agilent employees: Contacts for former Agilent employees: http://www.hpalumni.org/contact_agilent

Make sure that the company has your current mailing address. Even if not classified by the company as a "Retiree" or if long gone from the company. (For example, some have probably missed out on wage-and-hour class-action settlements.)

Ask for a "Retirement Specialist" -- otherwise, you may get an agent who is primarily trained on current-employee issues.

If the first-level Benefits Center phone agent can't resolve your issue, ask them to escalate your call. Use the magic word "escalate." We get very good reports from members who have escalated within the Benefits Center.

Benefits Center Advocacy Representatives.

Aon Retiree Health Exchange.

ARHE is an insurance sales agency that has been selected by HP to market HP-subsidized individual, standard open-market Medicare plans to HP retirees. ARHE is a separate company from Aon Hewitt, which operates the Benefits Centers for HPI and HPE and administers HP's group plans. Members report that employees of each company, understandably, have little or no knowledge of the other company's role or processes.

ARHE for HP Inc www.retiree.aon.com/hewlettpackard
Toll-free 1-800-975-0355, 7am to 10pm Central Time, Monday through Friday

ARHE for Hewlett Packard Enterprise https://retiree.aon.com/hewlettpackardenterprise
Toll-free 1-844-537-5303, 7am to 10pm Central Time, Monday through Friday

Escalate to either company via the HPAA:

While the HPAA is an independent volunteer organization and is not endorsed or supported by HP Inc or Hewlett Packard Enterprise, we do have informal escalation paths into HPI Corporate and HPE Corporate to raise issues with the Benefits Center (outsourced to Aon Hewitt.) For the company-subsidized individual Medicare plans purchased through the Aon Retiree Health Exchange, we have an informal escalation path to that Aon subsidiary. http://www.hpalumni.org/escalate  We do not have escalation paths for other areas -- such as HR, Payroll, or Retiree Discounts.
