Enrollment Guides for HP, HPE, and DEC retirees. (Updated Oct 22, 2021.) Contact the HPAA volunteers: info@hpalumni.org 

We have searchable copies of the HP and HPE Enrollment Guides here on the HP Alumni Association website. (Operated by volunteers. Not officially endorsed or supported.)

Many changes. Lots packed into the Enrollment Guides. Go through your Guide very carefully -- and mark it up.

Even if you have a paper copy, much easier to use if you download the current copy and use Adobe Reader's search feature to find specific words or phrases. (To search for a word or phrase in a pdf file, press Ctrl and F together on a PC -- or Command and F on a Mac.)

Scroll down for HPE Enrollment Guides...


HP, Pre-2003 HPE, and DEC retirees:

Two HP Enrollment Guides. One for cases where the retiree and all dependents are eligible for Medicare. The second is for all other cases. Neither Guide mentions that there are two Guides.

If eligible for Medicare:

- 2022 HP Retiree Benefits Enrollment Guide - Medicare.
Subtitle: "For US retirees who are eligible for Medicare"
On rear cover: "For eligible US retirees of HP Inc. and acquired companies."

Be sure to go through the critical info throughout the Guide
-- including "Medical re-enrollment rules" in tiny white-on-blue type on page 13.

HPE (Hewlett Packard Enterprise) retirees:

Note: HPE retirees who are qualified for the "Pre-2003" retirement program -- which refers to the year when HP's U.S. retiree medical program was redesigned to be much less generous -- not the year retired -- are legally retirees of HPE. However, HPE has paid HPInc to administer health benefits for those HPE retirees. (All other responsibilities, such as employment verification, are handled by HPE.) How to tell if you are qualified for Pre-2003: https://www.hpalumni.org/Pre2003

- If not on Pre-2003 program: 2022 HP Enterprise Retiree Enrollment Guide
[Black cover: Hikers, hammock, trio, two hands.]
https://www.hpalumni.org/2022HPE-RetireeEnrollmentGuide.pdf 
Be sure to go through the critical info on page 19.
