    GM employee discount question

    This may sound a little odd, but does anyone know if family members can still get the discount after the death of a GM employee? I'm hearing yes from one person, and no from another. I'd appreciate it if someone here could let me know.

    Dream Vehicles: 88-91 Reatta, an early 80s Buick Wagon, or any 79+ Riviera
    Current Vehicles:
    2005 Buick Park Avenue Ultra Special NYC two tone Edition (1 of 300 made) 70K miles
    1990 Buick Electra Park Avenue White w/ soft top and red leather interior. 76K miles
    Dead/Retired Vehicles:
    1998 Buick Riviera ~105,000, and totaled after being rear ended
    1990 Buick Park Avenue ~300,000 loyal miles before death from oil starvation. May you R.I.P. Christine.

    Yes you are allowed doing so. GM Employees have a max number of discounts they can give in a given year. However, so it will be up to the employee to decide if he can pass it on to you.

    But if he's dead?

    Yes you can. Here is an excerpt from the Employee Purchase guidelines on www.gmfamilyfirst.com. You have to log in to get the PDF document with this info.

    "The surviving spouses of deceased active eligible employees and deceased retired eligible employees are able to sponsor the same people the deceased employee or retiree would have been able to sponsor under the current Rules and Guidelines"

    Ok thanks for the information. Sadly my grandmother has Alzheimer's disease, and can't even remember my grandfather sometimes. So I guess I'm out of luck.

    Sorry to hear of your situation.

    I am sure that if you had the SS# of the deceased employee/retiree, you could still get the discount.

    Oh man sorry I misread what you asked. Usually you will need an SS# or a GMID to be able to get the discount I believe. If you are able to retrieve those you should be fine. You may want to look over the website though just to make sure. I am sure someone at GM may be able to help you out .

    Thanks guys for the help. I'm not looking to get anything right now, but I just wanted to know for future reference. Hey if all else fails, I can always skip dentisty school, and become a mechanical engineer and go to work for GM.
