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

Key: HPInc is the legal successor to EDS. Responsibility was not transferred to successor companies such as Hewlett Packard Enterprise or DXC. 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, pension, or stock issues. Update address at former company

If you received a "Potential Private Retirement Benefit Information" notice from Social Security, it is usually based on outdated information about a retirement plan or an employee stock fund. Note the "Year Reported" date on the form included in the body of the notice. Here's how to decode it: https://www.hpalumni.org/PotentialBenefitLetter

You may have an EDS pension. 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. https://www.hpalumni.org/edsPension
