Stock:  Links and HPAA member advice on Agilent and Keysight stock: Agilent Stock

You may now have stock in HP, HPE, Agilent, Keysight, or DXC in multiple accounts (such as at transfer agents for spun-off companies) and may not have received cash payouts for Micro Focus or Perspecta. Your current cost basis depends on when you acquired stock as companies were merged and spun out. HPAA members have developed a step-by-step process to untangle HP/HPE-related stock including spreadsheets to verify your records or estimate cost basis for employee stock purchases: Stock

Key: Agilent is the legal successor to the Hewlett-Packard business units -- instrument, medical, analytical, component, etc. -- that were that were transferred to Agilent on May 2, 2000. In general, responsibility for commitments to former employees of those business units rests with Agilent. (In turn, Keysight is now the legal successor to the HP/Agilent/Keysight instrument business.)

Make sure that the legal successor to 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. Update address at former company

Former employee or retiree of which company? (Includes any retiree health coverage, pension, 401(k), etc. )

- Left the Hewlett-Packard Company before the May 2, 2000 Agilent spinoff and had worked in the HP businesses that became Agilent -- instrument, medical, analytical, component, etc. -- classified as a former employee or retiree of Agilent and sent a notice at that time. HPAA's Agilent page: https://www.hpalumni.org/agilent  

- If worked in the HP or Agilent instrument business, reclassified in the Nov 1, 2014 Keysight spinoff as a former employee or retiree of Keysight and sent a notice at that time.
