A house in Palm Beach sounds nice. I like the story of that other kid who started his own wrestling league. Follow your dreams.

Sometimes you do the right thing just because it’s right.

    He might have taken cash vs the annuity for investment reasons since many expect the stock market to have even bigger gains this year.

    His time is up.

      Lottery officials said the money will be paid to a trust, set up with Missler as the managing member, called “Secret 007, LLC.”

      I wonder why he set up a trust to place the money in. It obviously wasn't so he could get the money anonymously.

      You can also use a trust vs a will to determine who gets what if you pass away. I have one and it is a living trust and will only be activated if I die or am permanently unable to care for myself. If you have a certain amount of assets, it is a good idea and allows up to a certain amount of your assets to avoid probate. I think it is around $5 million plus in Virginia. There are different types of trusts. If you win that large amount of money and get hit by a bus after leaving the lottery office, you want to cover who gets what ahead of time. If not, all the winnings would take years of going through probate and a judge would decide who gets what asset/ money.

          I had not considered that my State could limit the amount of money that would be distributed through a Living Revocable Trust. You have to fund it properly.

         I was thinking that Shane Missler may have enjoyed watching the local news do a feature on the store where his winning ticket was purchased. The day after the drawing. 

         Shane does enjoy FaceBook.

          That is why when you set up a living trust, it includes a pour over will (assets outside of state trust max), medical directives, etc. So I hope Shane had all these things done. I think I read something once that some or all lotteries have you note where the money goes if you die before it hits your bank account.   But, I suppose noting it is to be distributed in accordance with my estate plans, might be sufficient. They would not be asking to see trust or will documents.

              This boy. yep boy's life will be ruined. A 20 y/o lacks the life experience to fend off all the scam and con artists out there. When I was 20 I was in college and not playing the lotto. Eventually, LP will post horrible stuff that happened to him during his lifetime

              Your post reeks of jealousy. Just beczuse you were in college at the age of 20 and not playing the lottery, does not mean others should follow your lead. What are you thinking? When Gloria Mackenzie, the 80 plus year old won, some suggested that she was too old to be a winner. Now it's too young? As for LP posting " horrible stuff " about him during his lifetime..really, and you know this how? Give the kid some room, he might just surprise you.

              Word to the wise: Alexander the Great ascended the throne at age 20, by the time he died in his early 30's, his empire stretched from Greece to India.

                  Can one claim their lottery win Anonymously in Florida? Anyone, Anyone?

                  He is 20, he is thinking like a 20 year old. Think of this as his First GF. You want everyone to know you with someone, you seen holding hands, lots of pda. The guy is happy. Tell you what l like so far, he didn't show up on GMA the following day like the Robinsons with their attorney. He waited. Going public is not always a bad thing, especially in his case, why? Because he has the funds to have 2-4 bodyguards with him 24/7.Try approaching him with some BSon the street, and see if you not slammed against a concrete wall. How about them apples?

                    noise-gate, What are, "lots of pda"?    Shane might not need security for the rest of his life but just to get him through these exciting times. 

                     It looks like Florida is relaxing their previous rule of, "no anonymity" for all winners. Gloria did not do the media availability but she was photographed by the Press leaving the Lottery Headquarters in Tallahassee, FL. Shane did neither. He did leave a statement.

                            They never do.

                            A lottery winner from my neck of the woods was outed on TV years ago. The following weeks he had  bags upon bags of mail dropped off at his home. Said that he lost count of the " fruit baskets" left at his door with letters requesting money for their children' college, homes in foreclosure, emergency surgeries etc etc. He ended leaving town for a quieter lifestyle away from the madness.

                              noise-gate,  People believe they are the only ones with a problem and a winner is the only hope they have left. It is a shame he had to move. John and Lisa Robinson from Munford, TN had to move from their neighborhood to a very beautiful home. I am sure that they miss their old neighbors.
