In the case of the partition of the member’s benefits or to pay a compensatory allowance,
(1) the benefits awarded to the spouse from the member’s locked-in account must, except in the cases determined by regulation, remain locked in, even when the benefits are transferred to a pension plan determined by regulation; and
(2) the benefits awarded to the spouse from the member’s not locked-in account may be transferred to a pension plan determined by regulation or refunded, in accordance with the conditions determined by regulation.
However, the benefits awarded to the spouse following a seizure for non-payment of support in accordance with the second paragraph of article 553 of the Code of Civil Procedure (chapter C-25) must be paid in a lump sum, in the manner determined by regulation.
