That's why I had to laugh. The "experts" that haven't won a jackpot telling someone who has that they're stupid for claiming (pick one) too soon/not soon enough.

I Agree!You are  absolutely correct.

    If YOU win the jackpot- you can claim whenever you want, it's all up to you : the Winner. You call the shots.Screw what other may think or say, you now a millionaire and don't have to listen to other people's crap.That serious money is Yours.Only thing is you not going to get your cheque the next day , but who cares- You Won & you can raise the middle finger to anyone who tells you you claimed too soon or waited too long.

      The nutcases out there have probably already gone crazy zaba search finding out where they had and possibly do live. 

       

      Anyway very happy for them.

      Yo Dog, no zaba search needed. Bing search has it. Nice current house. What will they buy in the next 6 months?

        All my fingers work fine. Unsure how money changes that ability. Seems silly to treat others with such brashness... I'm sure this couple will indeed have their privacy respected. I wish them well in their health and wealth.

          Wow, if this California bought ticket was claimed more than two months after the Powerball drawing date, why wasn't it forced to be paid out via ANNUITY only?

              Opps Golfer is too late! The LA Times is reporting that they've already moved from this house in Eastvale last week and have disappeared (essentially).

              Wow, these winners are PRO's. Awesome.

                There is not any argument I will agree with that names of lottery winners should be released.

                  while it's important to get prepared..I don't think...no...I know I couldn't wait as long as they did.

                  I Agree!  Me either

                  Congrats to the lucky couple.

                  Finally the mystery is solved

                    Crazy

                    In California a big winner in Powerball or Megamillions has 12 months to file a claim.  Once the ticket has been validated by the CA Lottery Commission the winner has 60 days to choose lump sum or yearly payments for... I think it is 30 years.  Other states only allow 60 days from the drawing date, but not CA.  The CA lottery has the winner fill out a form indicating lump sum or yearly payments.  If a winner does not fill out this form within the 60 days then it automatically goes to the yearly payment schedule.  Smile

                        They will do very well with their blessing. They took their time to find all the ends and outs. This isn't the first couple to wait 6 months to claim a big Jack. Back about 5 years ago a couple in Illinois waited a week before the ticket was to expire to cash in 100 millions dollar meg a million ticket.

                            Thanks for showing potential winners how to claim without making a circus out of it.
