DETROIT (WKZO) -- Gay and lesbian employees of General Motors who have been legally married will now be eligible to purchase health insurance for their partners, regardless of where they live.

GM will also allow same-sex partners to inherit the pension of their spouse upon death.  The automaker's change will be in effect in all states, even those like Michigan where same-sex marriage is illegal.

Chrysler enacted a similar policy change earlier this year.
