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.

Artist77, Thank You for reminding me of a pour-over will, medical directives, etc. I will find a very competent legal adviser. Someone who knows the law. music*

    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.

    Word on the street is that the Robinsons imported alligators to fill that pond in front of their home, to ward off intruders who may decide to snorkel up to their front door. Have you seen their estate? It's huge...as Trump would say.

        I guess that the Robinsons changed their plans as soon as reality hit and the got the check. Are you saying that they have enough security?  I googled their new home and was lead straight back to Lottery Post. Man, it is HUGE!! WOW!!

          I FEEL like throwing away my money when buying QPs; especially now that the ticket is 2 dallas.  I like to be in control. :) The most I've won was $150 in 2003 Megamillions with 3 of my own numbers and the megaball.  Might try QPs for awhile.

              As he should be!  Expecting a 20 year old to go to ground is unrealistic. This kid is proving that this win is not going to turn his life upside down. What he is saying is, lm not going to hide, l will continue to do what l previously did. Which is to have fun. He's just out of his teen age years. You not expecting him to act like a 40 year old, are you? Come on!

                It was more of an observation than a judgement (but I do disagree with his choice).  People will be able to watch him spend his money with updates to their phones.  This will be an interesting experience, lottery winning in the post-privacy era.

                      I agree with you. Advertising your wealth over and over  in any public manner is asking for trouble. And you can do a private setting on facebook. Most, if not all advisors would have suggested he stop the public posts. There is a huge difference between saying I am 20 and I am not going to hide vs thinking a little more long term about the pros and cons of advertising his wealth.

                        Great article. Loved the part about wealth management vs investing. I recall more than one lottery winner who won hundreds of millions, saying they wanted to turn it into a billion (the Idaho winner I think). Just aim to maintain most of it.

                          Brad Duke is the name of the Star, Idaho winner who wants to turn his $80 million into one billion dollars. He has adjusted his time frame and said that this is a lifelong quest.

                           The article on Shane Missler suggests kidnap and ransom insurance for very large jackpots.

                           I heard that you should manage your new found wealth like a college endowment fund. Maintain and preserve it. 

                           An unexpected vacation away from your homes will be required of winners of this size jackpot. The media and the followers of it will have moved on.
