Hewlett-Packard Alumni Association

...for alumni of HP and HPE -- and those receiving company benefits. 

The HP Alumni Association is operated by volunteers. Not officially endorsed or supported. Website updated Aug 10, 2022.

If leaving or recently left: ASAP Checklist. Continually-updated member advice on what to do before losing access to company systems -- and in the following few weeks. hpalumni.org/asap

If a retiree or dependent: Retiree/Dependent Checklist. hpalumni.org/retiree  

Helping each other with life after HP and HPE. The nationwide HPAA has several moderated, email-based discussion forums. HPAA Benefits covers topics such as COBRA and retiree health benefits, annual enrollment, and transition to Medicare. HPAA Finance deals with employee stock, 401(k), pensions, and other personal finance issues from an ex-HP/HPE perspective. HPAA TechTalk members work together on HP/HPE-related personal technology questions.

Join us. If formerly a regular, direct U.S. employee of HP or HPE -- or are in the process of leaving. We also welcome others who could benefit from our updates and forums: spouses/partners, those receiving company benefits -- spouses/partners, dependents, DEC and EDS retirees -- and heirs with HP-related stock. No charge, thanks to HPAA's Supporting Members. Join at hpalumni.org/join

HP/HPE alumni news

Check your LinkedIn profile! Profiles were changed without notice. HPE changed many decades-old HP positions to HPE; LinkedIn deleted many employers. Recruiters and hiring managers view entries that don't make sense -- such as HPE employment before Nov 2015 -- as signs of a fake profile. You may wish to emphasize (or de-emphasize) some of your background by breaking out (or merging) separate positions. Step-by-step: hpalumni.org/LinkedIn

Aon Retiree Health Exchange is now Alight Retiree Health Solutions. (HP and HPE are among 150 organizations that have selected Alight Retiree Health Solutions as their exclusive broker to provide company-subsidized open-market Medicare plans to employees and retirees. You pay list price directly to the carrier or HMO. You are then reimbursed through a special Retiree Reimbursement Account.) BTW, Alight Retiree Health Solutions is a separate company from Alight Benefits Administration, which runs the HP Benefits Center. The old Aon links redirect you to Alight -- but here are the new direct links: https://retiree.alight.com/hp and   https://retiree.alight.com/hewlettpackardenterprise

Local HP social clubs in the Bay Area, Southern California, Oregon, and Texas -- and DEC chapters -- have in-person and virtual events: hpalumni.org/social

Facebook groups. Reliving the good times, reconnecting with people you worked with, and remembering those who have passed. Leading examples -- and how to find Facebook groups that match your career experience: Facebook groups for HP, HPE, EDS, DEC, CPQ  

"Potential Private Retirement Benefit" letter from Social Security. If "Type of Benefit" is "A" -- you rolled to a different plan, bought an annuity, or took cash. How to decode and what to do: hpalumni.org/PotentialBenefitLetter.

Time to untangle your stock!  Depending on when and how you acquired HP or HPE stock, you may now have stock in up to six completely separate HP-related companies in various accounts -- or have missed cash payouts. An HP Alumni team has developed a process to determine what stock you should have and how to find it. hpalumni.org/stock
