You're generally considered to be "retiring" if you leave HPE at age 55 or older with at least 10 years of qualifying service (or 15 years of service, for certain programs). You may also be considered to be retiring if you leave HPE with combined age-plus-service "points" equal to 80 or more. The definition of retirement varies by program.
If you leave HPE before you've satisfied age and service requirements for retirement, your benefits generally end. For example, your medical, dental, and vision benefits generally end at midnight on your termination date. But you may have opportunities to continue some of your HPE benefits, such as health coverage through COBRA, and you may have important decisions to make on others, like the HPE 401(k) Plan.
After you create your action plan, get the facts you’ll need to make your decisions and maximize the value of your HPE benefits.
