How to update former employers with your postal address   (Updated Jul 24, 2020.)

Make sure that every company you ever worked for has your current postal address. Even if not classified by the company as a "Retiree" or if long gone -- in case of pension plan changes, employment lawsuits, settlements, or other issues. (HPInc is the legal successor to companies bought by HP -- including Compaq and EDS. HPE is successor to companies it bought -- Cray, Nimble, etc.)

HP Breakup. On Nov 1, 2015, the Hewlett-Packard Company was renamed HP Inc. and a new, independent company -- Hewlett Packard Enterprise (no hyphen; singular; green-rectangle logo) -- was spun out. Portions of HPE were later spun out into DXC and Micro Focus, which have spun out other companies. Details: HP Breakup

HPInc is the legal successor to the companies acquired by the Hewlett-Packard Company before the company was split into HPInc and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE.) Responsibility for any commitments to former employees of Autonomy, Compaq, Digital, EDS, Tandem, etc. remain with HPInc -- regardless of whether the employee's last business unit ended up in HPInc or HPE. This includes employment verification and any retiree health coverage, pension, 401(k), etc. plans. HPE is responsible for any commitments to former employees of companies acquired by HPE, such as Cray, Nimble, etc. (About the HP Breakup)

Which HP-related companies am I a retiree or former employee of? (Not always obvious.) Given HP's complex history of acquisitions, divestitures, and spinoffs, the company or companies that you are legally a former employee of may not be obvious. (For example, the Hewlett-Packard Company was renamed HPInc in 2015.) If any doubt, check here: Which Company
