Yes, because I live in Florida, and you can't stay anonymous. So I would quit, move, and possibly find a new job depending on the amount I won.

    I think most of the people who frequent this website are pretty savvy about what to do if they win a large amount.  We have a plan in place for when we win:  Keep quiet, interview/hire a tax attorney, financial planner and CPA, set up a trust, claim the money in that trust, have an investment strategy for 80% of the after-tax winnings to generate personal income and fund a charitable trust (and spend the other 20% on family, friends, travel, beach house, new car, or whatever) and enjoy life!  Who would have time to work for someone else?

          Two averages were given, 3.63 and 2.59 million. The 3.63 definitely, I'm gone as soon as I cash it in, it's  just a piece of paper before you do. 2.59 yes to that too but you would need to be real careful how you spend it to make it last. 5 and up no question though.

            It really depends how much the jackpot was. A high jackpot , i would be gone like a thief in the night. The old saying that money can't buy happiness. I totally disagree! U tell that bull<snip> to the people , who are living pay check to check struggling to meet ends meet.  The pay check can only stretch so far.  As soon as i find out i won that jackpot , i would get my legal team in place , then i would help out my immediate family and pay all my debts and theirs.  I would give nothing toother  family and friends because they don't deserve anything! I can handle the jealousy part , i just tell them to keep it moving.

                I think I would take the annuity just to get that annual check for thirty years.-weshar75
