The pros and cons for the two options should be considered carefully before electing which option is appropriate for your financial situation. Over the years, the majority of Chevron employees have opted for lump-sum.
It is important to understand the variables that are used in the calculation for the lump-sum payout. One important factor is the Segment Rates.

When you decide to retire from Chevron, you will need to notify HR and order your When You Leave package. Please note that this package can only be ordered up to 90 days before your set retirement date. Once the HR receives your paperwork in good order, the current Chevron segment rates are applied. In order to get the lump-sum payout at the beginning of following month, paperwork should be turned in at least two weeks prior.
