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 class-action
settlements or other issues.
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:
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. If any doubt, check here:
