Contacts for former employees of spinoff and predecessor companies
Advice and reference info from members. (Updated January 7, 2018.) Questions or comments to: email@example.com
Make sure that every company you worked for (which may include both HP Inc and Hewlett-Packard Enterprise) 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.)
First -- Which Company am I a retiree or former employee of? HP, or HPE, or multiple companies? Given HP's complex history of acquisitions, divestitures, and spinoffs, the company that you are a former employee of may not be obvious. Before contacting one of the HP-related companies, check here: Which Company
This page is for former employees and retirees of spinoff and predecessor companies such as Agilent, Compaq, Digital, DXC, EDS, Keysight, Micro Focus, Tandem, etc.
HP Inc Retirement Service Center: Also manages any
pension accounts that predecessor companies may have
had. (If you were
employed by EDS or "EDS, an HP Company" before January 1,
2009 you may have an EDS pension that you have forgotten
If you have an existing HP 401(k) or personal brokerage account at Fidelity, go to http://netbenefits.com and use your existing username and password. Otherwise, call Fidelity at 1-800-457-4015 -- select "ESPP" -- on any business day (except NYSE holidays) between 8:30 a.m. and midnight Eastern time. Outside the US, call 1-508-787-9902 collect.
Stock Records: 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 could wind up paying taxes twice on the same income. Some of your stock or dividends may have been turned over to a state government as "unclaimed." Your cost basis doesn't affect your heirs, but they may not be able to find all your stock. A team of HP Alumni volunteers has developed a step-by-step process to help you find all your stock, protect it from being treated as abandoned property, and prevent double taxation.

W-2: 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
Employment verification: (Also covers the company's predecessor companies -- including EDS.) Official HP instructions -- and HPAA member tips -- on how to provide current and past employment status and salary to potential employers, financial institutions, and government aid agencies: http://www.hpalumni.org/verif.
