Can benefits be paid in the form of a lump sum benefit?

No, but with one exception. The portion of the Participant’s monthly retirement allowance awarded to the Alternate Payee may not be paid in the form of a lump sum payment. However, if for some reason, the Participant makes a withdrawal of contributions and interest to the Plan, in some cases, the Alternate Payee may receive a portion of those contributions and interest in the Plan paid in the form of a lump sum.
