The legacy U.S. HP retirement plans -- the RP, DPSP, and CAPP.

For details on the current HP retirement plans, including current postal addresses -- go to Current HP Retirement Plans

The key document for a US employee retirement or health plan is the legal Summary Plan Description (SPD). It includes plan details and an address at the employer for appeals. The current SPD takes precedence over any other written, online, or verbal information you may have been given -- but is still subject to change. The employer's plan administrator is required by law to provide the SPD upon request. How to obtain and decode: https://www.hpalumni.org/SPD-decode
