  (b)  The amount of the pension as determined under paragraph (a) of this subdivision shall be reduced to the actuarially equivalent amount to produce the optional form of benefit described in subdivision (1) of subsection 4 of section 86.1540;

  (c)  The amount of reduced pension as determined under paragraph (b) of this subdivision shall be further reduced as required to produce an actuarially equivalent benefit in the form of the lump sum distribution option elected under this section and a remaining monthly annuity which shall be paid on the basis that the initial annuity for the member's spouse, if such spouse survives the member, shall be the same as the amount being paid the member on this annuity at the member's death, and, subject to cost-of-living adjustments thereafter declared on the spouse's base pension under section 86.1590, shall be paid to such surviving spouse for the lifetime of such spouse without regard to remarriage.

  3.  An election under this section to receive a lump sum distribution and reduced monthly base pension shall be void if the member dies before retirement, in which case amounts due a surviving spouse or other beneficiary of the member shall be determined without regard to such election.
