For EDS Alumni (Electronic Data Systems Corporation)   (Updated July 3, 2020.)  Comments about this page to: info@hpalumni.org

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

A lump-sum pension buyout offer has been made to some who have legacy DEC and EDS pension plans. Deadline: July 15, 2020. Details: 2020 Pension Lump-Sum Offer

Key: HPInc is the legal successor to EDS. Responsibility was not transferred to subsequent successor companies such as HPES, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, DXC, etc. HPInc has responsibility for any commitments to former EDS employees.  This includes any retiree health coverage, pension, 401(k), etc. plans. (Does not depend on whether the employee's last business unit ended up in HPInc or Hewlett Packard Enterprise in the HP Breakup.) 

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 from the company -- in case of class-action settlements or pension issues. (Some EDS people may have missed out on a wage-and-hour class-action settlement. If you were employed by EDS or "EDS, an HP Company" before January 1, 2009 you may have an EDS pension that you have forgotten about.) Update address at former company
