Subject: GM's recent success and UAW pension and VEBA

First of all I pray this message finds everyone doing well!! And want to let you know I'm praying for all my fellow UAW brothers and sisters. Does anyone know if GM still owes money to our pension and VEBA? It's seems I remember GM oweing about 10 billion to each before they filed for bankruptcy in 2010. Wondering if these debts were wiped out in the bankruptcy or if GM is supposed to make good when their bottom line improved? Does anyone know where we can research this information? Thanks!!!

first-a sending my condolences about George Ramsey dying and (((hugs))) for his family...sad that a lot of our union brothers/sisters are passing away :( We have decided to keep our insurance-keep paying to have it--we won't have to deal with that Obamacare or get penalized for not joininng up with it since we do have insurance...getting it free-sounds kind of "iffy"...meaning we don't want to take that chance of having insurance one day(free for time being) and the next-not...

It is good news to see we are getting out dental and vision back in 2015. I have kept my COBRA in force so I had benefits while ours were lacking. Now, I wonder, once I give up the cobra, if I decide to, I will not be able to get it back. So, what if we get coverage for 2015 but then they decide to drop it again? So, I'm just sitting on the fence. Hello Sue! Thanks for the updates Dave. Hope all who are left are well and happy. Bye for now.

The text of the announcement that David wanted to share showed up in my inbox! Here it is:

Dear All,
There is some great news for all retirees concerning reinstate  of Dental & Vision benefits next year.... please click in the browser to read the details.
One question to all, if you know the answer, please kindly provide : I need to have 2 crowns cap fixed soon ( it will costs me about $3000 out of pocket) because I have only very basic dental coverage from UAW-GM, if you know Delta Dental pre 2009 coverage or the up and coming coverage, I hope they will at least some coverage on this Crowns service ?  I intend to keep the service on hold to until early next year  hoping the new Dental coverage will cover some of my expense, what do you think ?
Wishing All of my friends and Happy and Solemn Memorial Day Holiday,  and don't forget to Thanks A Vet .
I am very very disturb about the current VA scandals  how could a captive terrorist held in Gitmo received better VA healthcare than Our Proud and Brave Veterans who put their lives on the line to serve this country of OURS : The United States Of America
God Bless You All
