Know someone who is leaving HP? They should use the HP Alumni Association's "ASAP Checklist" immediately. It has advice and mutual help -- developed by HPAA members -- on the many things you have to do before you lose access to HP's internal systems.  (HPAA membership not required.)

Currently at HP? Whether you expect to leave HP soon or not: advice and information from HP alumni on transition planning; stock purchase cost basis; networking; "What I wish I had known before I left HP" -- and more. (HPAA membership not required.)

Gone from HP? Untangle employee stock purchase cost basis; compare notes on US retiree and COBRA health plans and how they work with Social Security; see US job openings from employers interested in recruiting HP alumni; post your technical questions on the TechTalk forum -- and more.
