Employment and salary verification

Keep in mind that Micro Focus is a completely separate company from HPE -- not a successor corporation to HPE.

First step: Which Company am I a retiree or former employee of? HP Inc, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Compaq, DEC, DXC, EDS, Micro Focus, Tandem... or multiple companies? Given HP's complex history of  acquisitions, divestitures, and spinoffs, the company that you are legally a former employee of may not be obvious. Before contacting one of the HP-related companies, check here: Which Company 

Stock and HPE options 

For those who transitioned to Micro Focus:

- 401(k) Members report that the next 401(k) match payout was to be on the date of their transition.
- You are classified as a former employee or retiree of HPE. Treated as though you left HPE to join any other company. Entitled to whatever retiree coverage you qualified for at the time you left HPE. (If qualified for the "Pre-2003" retirement program, classified as a retiree of HPE but medical benefits administered by HP Inc.)
