ELECTIONS REGARDING TIME AND FORM OF DISTRIBUTIONS
Section 5.01General Provisions. A Director may elect a Designated Benefit Commencement Date and/or Designated Form only as provided in this Article. To be effective, an election pursuant to this Article must be filed with the Administrator on an Applicable Form within the required election period.

The Administrator may change such formula or methodology at any time, provided that no such change shall be applied retroactively, if retroactive application of the change would reduce the Investment Credits for any Plan Year. As of the last day of each calendar month, the Administrator shall credit each Participant’s Account with Investment Credits for the portion of the Participant’s Account deemed invested in the Index Fund.
(c)In determining Investment Credits under the Index Fund and crediting such amounts to a Participant’s Account, the Administrator may use such methods and make such estimates as it deems reasonable.

DISTRIBUTION OF ACCOUNTS
Section 7.01Distribution on Designated Benefit Commencement Date.

Section 7.03Distribution on Account of Unforeseeable Emergency. If a Participant incurs an Unforeseeable Emergency, he may apply to the Administrator for a distribution from his Account of an amount needed to satisfy the Unforeseeable Emergency. If the Administrator approves the Participant’s application, the approved distribution shall be made as a lump sum to the Participant as soon as administratively practicable following the Administrator’s decision. The amounts distributed with respect to an Unforeseeable Emergency may not exceed the amounts necessary to satisfy such emergency, plus amounts necessary to pay taxes reasonably anticipated as a result of the distribution, after taking into account the extent to which such hardship is or may be relieved through reimbursement or compensation by insurance or otherwise, by the waiver of a Deferral Election pursuant to Section 4.05, or by liquidation of the Participant’s assets (to the extent that the liquidation of such assets would not itself cause severe financial hardship to the Participant).
Section 7.04Required Delay in Distributions to Specified Employees. Notwithstanding the preceding provisions of this Section, if the Participant is a “specified employee” within the meaning of Code Section 409A(a)(2)(B)(i), to the extent required by such Code Section and the guidance thereunder, payments otherwise required by this Section on account of the Participant’s separation from service (within the meaning of Code Section 409A(a)(2)(A)(i)) shall be delayed to the earliest date on which such payments are permitted.)
Section 7.05Determination of Beneficiary. A Participant may designate a Beneficiary or change an existing Beneficiary designation by filing an Applicable Form with the Administrator. To be effective, the Beneficiary designation or change must be received by the Administrator during the Participant’s life. If a Participant does not make an effective Beneficiary designation, or if all designated Beneficiaries predecease the Participant or die before the complete
distribution benefits hereunder, the Participant’s Beneficiary shall be (i) his Spouse, if his Spouse survives him, (ii) if there is no surviving Spouse, his descendants (including legally adopted children or their descendents) per stirpes; (iii) if there is neither a surviving spouse nor surviving descendants, or his estate, if his Spouse does not survive him, to the duly appointed and qualified executor or other personal representative of the Participant to be distributed in accordance with the Participant’s will or applicable intestacy law; or (iv) if no such representative is duly appointed and qualified within 30 days after the date of death, those persons who would be entitled to share in the distribution of the Participant’s estate under the provisions of the applicable statute then in force governing the descent of intestate property, in the proportions specified in such statute. The Administrator may determine the identity of the distributees, and in so doing may act and rely upon any information it may deem reliable upon reasonable inquiry, and upon any affidavit, certificate, or other paper believed by it to be genuine, and upon any evidence believed by it to be sufficient. If the Administrator has any doubt as to the proper Beneficiary, the Administrator may withhold payments hereunder until the matter is finally adjudicated. However, any payment made by an Employer in good faith and in accordance with the Plan document shall fully discharge the Plan, the Administrator, the Employer, and all other persons from all further obligations with respect to that payment.
Section 7.06Incapacity of Participant or Beneficiary. If any person entitled to receive a distribution under the Plan is physically or mentally incapable of personally receiving and giving a valid receipt for any payment due (unless prior claim therefor shall have been made by a duly qualified guardian or other legal representative), then, unless and until claim therefor shall have been made by a duly appointed guardian or other legal representative of such person, the Employer may provide for such payment or any part thereof to be made to any other person or institution then contributing toward or providing for the care and maintenance of such person. Any such payment shall be a payment for the account of such person and a complete discharge of any liability of the Employer and the Plan therefor.
Section 7.07Small Balance Cash-Out. If a Community Board Director has an Account valued at $18,000 or less, he will receive a payment for the entire value of the Account as soon as administratively practicable after January 1, 2018. The value of the Account will be determined for purposes of this Section as of December 31, 2017. If a Community Board Director has an Account valued at an amount that exceeds $18,000, he will be considered an inactive Participant and his Account will be distributed to him on his Designated Benefit Commencement Date.
Section 8.01Powers and Responsibilities of the Administrator.
(a)The Administrator shall have full responsibility and discretionary authority to control and manage the operation and administration of the Plan. The Administrator is authorized to accept service of legal process on behalf of the Plan. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, any action taken by the Administrator pursuant to a reasonable interpretation of the Plan shall be binding and conclusive on all persons claiming benefits under the Plan, except to the extent that a court of competent jurisdiction determines that such action was arbitrary or capricious.

If the claimant does not file a timely appeal, the Administrator’s decision shall be deemed final and binding on all persons. In connection with his appeal, the claimant may submit comments, documents, records, and any other information relating to his claim. The Administrator shall provide the claimant, upon request, reasonable access to, and copies of, all documents, records, and other information relevant to the claim, without regard to whether the Administrator considered those documents, records, and/or information in its initial Denial.
