For EDS Alumni (Electronic Data Systems Corporation)   (Updated May 24, 2020.)  Comments about this page to: info@hpalumni.org

Information from EDS alumni for EDS alumni -- whether or not you ever worked for HP...

Key: HP Inc is the legal successor to EDS -- not subsequent successor companies such as HPES, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, DXC, etc. -- and has responsibility for any commitments to former EDS employees. (Does not depend on whether your last business unit subsequently ended up in HP Inc or Hewlett Packard Enterprise in the HP Breakup.)   

Contacting HP. First, which Company am I a retiree or former employee of? Given HP's complex history of  acquisitions, divestitures, and spinoffs, the company that you are legally a former employee of may not be obvious. Before contacting one of the HP-related companies, check here: Which Company  

Make sure that HP Inc has your current mailing address. Even if not classified by the company as a "Retiree" or if you are long gone from the company. (For example, some may have missed out on wage-and-hour class-action settlements.) The company will only update payroll records. It is your responsibility to notify the Benefits Center, Fidelity, etc. -- and watch your subsequent paperwork to verify that changes have actually been made in every database.
