I have been working on a chart for all the states.

 

Here is what I have for Wisconsin.

 

Not anonymous/cannot be claimed by other entities. "The original winning ticket must be signed by a single human being. For-profit and non-profit entities, trusts, and other non-human beings are not eligible to play or claim a prize." Source: https://wilottery.com/claimprize.aspx

 

So trusts are not a option regardless of the counsel you hire.

Hi Artist! 

What other states do you have on your chart?  OH I know is an anonymous state, same with SC and DE, and MD... 
But what about PA, IN, KY, TN....or even that one state where the media shot down efforts to make winners anonymity a thing... 

Thanks in advance...

        A poster in this thread called Jason Kurland "Joshua". He is but one of millions of lawyers who are able to help jackpot winners.

          So.... Here's what I want to know....

          Can the winner in WI claim through a Trust or LLC...meaning: the Name of the Trust or LLC is put on the Back of the Ticket?

          I live in a non-anon state, and I am concerned about that particular rule, when it comes to claiming. 

          If their Identity is spread out by the Lottery (as per the rules they put down to insure that "Real People REALLY DO WIN") 
          then, that winner is basically a target by all the wolves and yahoos out there.

          I've harped on this before.....and I know that most folks agree with me, despite saying in reply...

          "Well....they should have went to an anon state to purchase that ticket!"
          or
          "If they didn't want to be exposed, they better not play."
          or
          "what's the problem? Just grin and bear it....it'll be *alriiiiiiiiiight*"

          Is the WI winner basically S-O-L when it comes to protecting their identity when claiming?

          Because here's what I would do in that winner's situation

          Get that Lawyer from New York (I think his name is Joshua Something, or if you can't get him, get a lawyer who will work for a flat rate, and do this.
          ----> Form 2 trusts, (or get two aged Shelf Trusts) where one collapes into the other. and get two Shelf Corp's
          -----> Trust 1 is a receiving trust (lottery-office facing) that collects the money (minus taxes) (Trustee has to be a Shelf Corp, Beneficiary has to be the Bridge Trust)
          -----> Trust 2 is the bridge trust (Receiving Trust Facing) (trustee has to be 2nd shelf corp, beneficiary has to be 1st shelf corp) 
          and this bridge trust collapses into the 1st shelf corp.

          But I'm not sure...Can a Beneficiary on the bridge trust, be trustee on the receiving trust?  I don't know....

          But is this thinking all for naught, and the winner is SOL when it comes to protecting their identity from the public?

          Maybe in WI it is.

          Wow. No offense, but it's quite surprising to see people spend so long on a forum and yet post so little.
          This is very unique to Lottery Post.
          The Lawyer's name is Jason Kurland.

              Well....thank you for the correct name of the Lawyer.  However, State Law in WI wouldn't do this guy any good about protecting his Identity.

              You'd think that with all of the horror stories out there, WI would take steps to help or assist winners in protecting their identity, but...no. 

              So, what COULD Jason Kurland do for this winner in this situation?  My guess is...not much.

                Change will happen when reality hits like when a baby is kidnapped and killed for ransom. The kidnappers want the Jackpot money. 

                 Actually this occurred in Australia way back in the 1960's. Australia, Canada, and the U.K. all went to anonymous claiming soon after. 

                 I will use the LP Search box and see if the story is there.

                🤔

                  There are plenty of loopholes and techniques that a lawyer could use to protect your money in the event of a civil lawsuit against you. While physical threats are far more terrifying, you're far far far more likely to lose it from civil actions against you by everyone you ever met.
