I thought that the Trustee(s)  had to sign all trust documents.

    The winner is on record stating she plans to give away $50M to charitable causes. She didn't say she was going to do it all on Day One.

      The problem will always be how the lottery is perceived by future potential players. By not publishing names, the lotteries feel that it takes away from their game and future sales. It’s debatable on both sides I suppose.

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

        The trustee with a trust is your rep, typically an attorney. She/he claims the money and ensures it is deposited to a bank account. The trust agreement between the winner and the attorney is a private document and not disclosed/provided to the lottery officials. It is usually a short term trust just to claim the money.

          Which is why l purchase ALL my tickets in neighboring cities Stack. My last name is German, and to the best of my knowledge, there are only 2-3 folks with that last name in the entire city l live in. In order to throw red meat in the opposite direction, l go an extra mile in an attempt to baffle the search hounds.lts the next best thing from breaking into a safe, using your toes. Have those fingerprint experts running around in circles.Big Smile

          I too have an unique last name; only two people in the entire state have it.

          One of my favorite quotes by some the large jackpot winners is "I plan to keep on working and my life won't change". I suppose it depends on the type of job, but do they really believe life will go on the same?

          Lots of people here seem to think state lotteries are responsible for the security the large jackpot prize winners, but prize winners under $10 million should be on their own. Most stores have security cams so it should be given if the winner is a regular, the store will know who they are. Lots of states have Online wagering for players that want total anonymity.

            Go to KY lottery website and look @ the winners.  The on-line winners are not anonymous, albeit $50K is the largest one so far posted.  In Louisville, a man cashed in a $1K ticket and thugs killed him for the money.  Waiting to see when one big MM or PB winner plays on line in KY and wins.

              l was being generous when l said there were 2-3 persons in my city with my last name. Did a name search of my State, and like yourself there are only 2 in CA. Now if only we were all born with numbers instead of names, how do you say Slam dunk!

                  Cash option minus 37% federal taxes = take home if claimed in 2018 (no state income tax in N.H.)

                      None of the reasons for states that don't allow winners to remain anonymous can counter the fact that states and countries that dp allow winners to remain anonymous haven't had to discontinue their lotteries. 

                      Just male remaining anonymous an option and those who want to 'shout it from the rooftops' can do so uf they want to and those who want to win 'stealth' can also do so.

                      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any. So many systems, so many theories, so few jackpot winners.

                      There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                        An Ohio Lottery winner was robbed and killed too, but it wasn't because they saw his name in the paper or on the website. It's difficult to say if it was lottery publicity from Abraham Shakespeare winning the jackpot death or from the Michael Ford law suit.

                        The KY Lottery posts the first names and city of all Online winners over $100. I don't buy MM or PB Online so I if that is a problem, I won't have it.

                            Come on Stack47.  I just looked up an on line winner from KY...full First and last name from Saylersville...$50K! I will give them credit to make it a few clicks to find out the information, but there it is.  Her name is Jessica Ballard.  Others are there too for yours or anyone else perusal.

                              Denying anonymity to winners has nothing to do with transparency. As discussed before, an outside reputable firm can audit the winners to ensure everything is above board. 

                              Why the states fight it is because flashing people's names on thousands of computer screens in each state, in 3 inch block letters for years, is free advertising for the lotteries.  And they do this for years. It might be different if they released the winner's name to the msm and made it public to inquiries and that was it. 

                              I dont see where in the regulations/laws that is legal. I'd love to see it channeled on those grounds.  Cussing Face
