Tax with Max: Paying out death benefits

Death benefits, contribution limits, and more.

I am concerned with respect to a two member SMSF that upon the death of one member a death benefit has to be paid out in the form of cash. Is this a legal requirement, and if so what provision imposes the requirement? Can the benefit be paid by way of an in-specie distribution of assets assuming the trust deed allows for that?
