Not all victims of an ignition switch problem with General Motors are eligible for a payout.

GM created a compensation fund for the families of those who died or victims injured in one of the 2.6 million vehicles recalled in February. But money from the fund is not being offered to victims of later June recalls of 11.6 million cars.

Victims not eligible for GM's compensation fund still have the option to sue the company.
