If you do win the Powerball jackpot, of course you will need to leave town after claiming the prize.  Does the lottery give you some of the money up front (So you can leave town and rent a hotel room) or do you have to wait until later on to receive any of it.  I read about a Wisconsin PB winner (Peter Bapes) who won it earlier this year and the website said that he would receive the wire transfer within 10 business days. 

 

But what if.....

Someone, such as a greedy family member or relative , interferes with the wire transfer and tells the lottery to give your prize money to THEM instead of you.  There have been times when someone wins and people try to sue the lottery winner even before they get the money.  How do you know that someone won't convince the lottery to give them the money instead when it should be for you.  You never know...... maybe it's better to go somewhere where you can be anonymous.

Smart lottery winners form trust to claim their winnings.  They send an attorney to the lottery headquarters to claim the prize in trust, so that ONLY the name of the trust is revealed.  And they tell NO ONE, especially relatives.

If you ever win a lottery and you are single, the only person you should ever marry is someone who was truly in love with you BEFORE you won the jackpot!

      NO,  why would you ask?

        If you win you get the money not someone else. You go to the lottery office file the paper work and go wherever you want. your banking institution will be more than willing to offer whatever assistance you need. You stop by there office and show them your receipt from the lottery. I'll bet the manager will do back flips to get your business.

          Because your post is so far from left field; its hard to imagine any one would ask such a question. 

          1. The holder of the ticket determines the disbursement, not some bogus person from left field.   A rare - RARE - exception would be a court case, not some imaginary person.  Try reading some lottery rules and regulations; get carried away and search some state statutes.

          2. You get no advance money from the lottery, your state is neither a bank nor a charity.  Perhaps you have the lottery confused with welfare payments.

              Maybe you'll be lucky enough to find out firsthand by winning a jackpot .... then you can tell us how they do it!!  Good luck, and don't believe there will be any glitches like you were contemplating.  Big Grin Santa

              I always understood with a major jackpot it took a few to several days to check if there were any tax liens, child support payments, do tax withholding, etc., which had to be paid before disbursal.  Probably other reasons for delay that I'm simply not aware of.

              However, understand that with other non-parimutuel payouts it takes a couple of hours to do that research and issue you a check.  Please let me know if that is correct.  Yes Nod

              Good luck to everyone!

                He was just asking a question. Remember that saying, "There are no wrong questions, only wrong answers." or something like that. I am sure he was just being curious. No harm in that.

                    Lottery players are supposed to be adults and adults are supposed to be mature and ask mature questions.  Researching answers, before you ask questions, is something some one over 18 should have learned.  Some times you can only baby a baby, and some times you have to tell an adult to act like an adult.  It is how the world is designed to work.  In real life, you are not rewarded for failure.  Unless you live in a liberals mind.

                      i like goofy people    the problem may be lack of drugs    sometimes when people pick up lotto money  the lines start with people looking to get hold of your new cash    show links to past winners problems    like the ny parking lot guy who's wife got her own split

                        Actually I'm have a great week.  However, the no bad question is a myth created years ago.  There are lots of bad questions; most resulting from laziness or sillyness.  If an instructor tells his class there is no tea in China, and the first question out of a students mouth is, How much tea is there in China, that is a dumb question.  The no bad question myth is as bad as there no mistakes, only opportunities myth, or all people are created equal myth. 

                        I have no problems with quest for knowledge questions.  Don't ask questions, when you know where the answers are.  That indicates lack of preparation; and that should not be rewarded.  It encourages sloppiness. There is harm in that.

                          Sounds more like paranoia than anything. The only person that can claim the money is YOU, or whoever has signed the ticket. No one else. Surely the lottery would be prepared for such scams, as I am sure there may have been crazy enough people who have tried some of these things. They are not going to wire it anywhere without your permission.

                            for the life of me,  I cannot see where this person asking a question wasn't being mature.  Seems like they were telling what they read, (although we dont know the source),  he was only bringing up a topic of communciation to see if what he read was true or if anyone else had any more knowledge of the subject..  How else to do it other than ask questions?  He could research, yes.. but how would he know if the answers found there would be true..  Here on LP.. you are able to talk back and forth with real people instead of reading what someone has written on the subject. 

                            I still think the reply was down right ugly.. Not something a mature adult would do.  Even if the question was seen in a "childish manner", an adult would still answer it in an "adult manner."

                             

                            I teach special education children and they have parents who would ask some questions that make me think, gosh, how did they make it being parents.. However, being a mature adult, I do not insult their intelligence with ugly remarks.  I instead will answer them.  There is no sense in making anyone feel foolish because they don't know what I know. 

                            I am sure that rundown99 has knowledge about something that others here at LP could ask him/her about if interested.  Surely we wouldn't want him / her to answer us as if we were crazy.

                              Having a bad day Chewie?

                              He was just asking a question. Remember that saying, "There are no wrong questions, only wrong answers." or something like that. I am sure he was just being curious. No harm in that.

                              Actually I'm have a great week.  However, the no bad question is a myth created years ago.  There are lots of bad questions; most resulting from laziness or sillyness.  If an instructor tells his class there is no tea in China, and the first question out of a students mouth is, How much tea is there in China, that is a dumb question.  The no bad question myth is as bad as there no mistakes, only opportunities myth, or all people are created equal myth. 

                              I have no problems with quest for knowledge questions.  Don't ask questions, when you know where the answers are.  That indicates lack of preparation; and that should not be rewarded.  It encourages sloppiness. There is harm in that.

                              Could it be that here at LP is where rundown99 was looking for the answer?

                              "The only stupid question is that one that goes unasked"  it is not a myth..
