Time to untangle your stock! No one but you really cares about your employment-related stock. You may now have stock in up to seven HP-related companies. Your stock may not all be in the same place, or be registered to your current postal address. You may need to find stray accounts or retrieve lost stock, dividends, or cash payouts. The IRS does not have the ability to independently determine your cost basis; you may need to estimate it. An HP Alumni team has developed a step-by-step process. https://www.hpalumni.org/stock

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.

- 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 health benefits administered by HP Inc.)
