Congratulations on your decision to retire. Keep in mind that you’re generally considered an HPE retiree only if you’re leaving at age 55 or older with 10 or more years of service (or age 55 or older with at least 70 age-plus-service “points” for equity grants). 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, and the applicable program provisions govern regardless of any alternative provisions or early retirement programs that may have been offered in the past.
Your current medical, dental, and vision coverage (for you and your dependents) ends at midnight on your termination date. However, you may be eligible to continue medical coverage under the HPE Retiree Medical Program. You can also elect to continue dental and vision coverage for up to 18 months under COBRA.
Note: There are instances in which you may not qualify for the HPE Retiree Medical Program even if you meet the eligibility requirements. This includes if you left HPE as part of the Enterprise Services spin-off.
After you create your action plan, get the facts you’ll need to make your decisions and maximize the value of your HPE benefits.
