If you got a letter from Social Security entitled "Potential Private Retirement Benefit." Look at the "Year Reported" and the table on the back of the letter. 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: https://www.hpalumni.org/PotentialBenefitLetter.


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

The key document for a US employee retirement or health plan is the legal Summary Plan Description (SPD). 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. Log into the plan administrator's website or call.  How to decode an SPD
