The Hewlett Packard (HP) Retirement Benefit Plan has reappointed EQ Paymaster as its third-party administrator for the next five years.

The duo have worked together since 2008, with the time in between having seen the plan invest in a range of member services that are integrated with EQ Paymaster’s front-end member engagement activity.

The HP Retirement Benefit Plan caters for around 14,000 current and former employees of the California-headquartered information technology company.
