8.4 Payment Due an Incompetent. If the Administrator shall find that any person to whom any payment is payable under the Plan is unable to care for his affairs because of mental or physical illness, accident, or death, or is a minor, any payment due (unless a prior claim therefor shall have been made by a duly appointed guardian, committee or other legal representative) may be paid to the spouse, a child, a parent, a brother or sister or any person deemed by the Administrator, in its sole discretion, to have incurred expenses for such person otherwise entitled to payment, in such manner and proportions as the Administrator may determine. Any such payment shall be a complete discharge of the liabilities of the Employer under this Plan, and the Employer shall have no further obligation to see to the application of any money so paid.
8.5 Spendthrift Clause. No right, title or interest of any kind in the Plan shall be transferable or assignable by any Participant or Beneficiary or be subject to alienation, anticipation, encumbrance, garnishment, attachment, execution or levy of any kind, whether voluntary or involuntary, nor subject to the debts, contracts, liabilities, engagements, or torts of the Participant or Beneficiary. Any attempt to alienate, anticipate, encumber, sell, transfer, assign, pledge, garnish, attach or otherwise subject to legal or equitable process or encumber or dispose of any interest in the Plan shall be void.
8.6 Severability. In the event that any provision of this Plan shall be declared illegal or invalid for any reason, said illegality or invalidity shall not affect the remaining provisions of this Plan but shall be fully severable and this Plan shall be construed and enforced as if said illegal or invalid provision had never been inserted herein.
8.7 Construction. The article and section headings and numbers are included only for convenience of reference and are not to be taken as limiting or extending the meaning of any of the terms and provisions of this Plan. Whenever appropriate, words used in the singular shall include the plural or the plural may be read as the singular. When used herein, the masculine gender includes the feminine gender. The Plan shall be construed and interpreted by the Committee to the maximum extent possible in a manner to avoid any adverse tax consequences to Participants under Section 409A of the Code.
8.8 Governing Law. The validity and effect of this Plan, and the rights and obligations of all persons affected hereby, shall be construed and determined in accordance with the laws of the State of Texas unless superseded by federal law.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the Employer has caused the Plan to be amended and restated effective as of the day and year first above written.
