    Actually, the money becomes part of the person's estate upon their demise.  Now if a person were to leave this earth intestate (without a legal will), difficulties could arise when settling the estate.  The courts (in NY it's the Surrogate's Court) then become involved as far as naming an executor/administrator for the estate.

    In NY we have had problems in the past (I hope) where unscrupulous "professionals" took advantage of very large estates when naming an executor/administrator. The estates were bled dry of assets via legal fees etc.

    If there are no family members to step up to the plate to be appointed as an executor/administrator then its all up for grabs! Leaving

      It's called get a will. There is cheap software to do it and even people that write out where they want their money to go is almost always held legal also. If nothing expresses where you want the money to go then a judge decides.

            We must be related.  That's what I always think about! LOL  But you must mean "I'd be more worried about someone seeing my dirty litter box" right?  Of course if you win the lottery, you can have someone else clean it out every day.

              I'm sure that there would be a long line of people willing to take on that chore. Money is a great motivator. ROFL

                Sadly in this day and age I would be more worried that I had an easy to find insurance card than clean underwear. Odds are if they have to get to see the underwear your not looking your best anyways.

                  mom always said - wear clean underwear in case you're run over by a truck. her words come back to me - and she's been dead almost 20 yrs.
                  mom had her priorities.   lol

                    My mother said the same thing, although I think it was a bus.

                        If you live in Florida or some other state which starts the 60-day cash/annuity clock with the DRAWING, make sure you claim the jackpot AS SOON AS POSSIBLE so that you're not stuck with annuity payments if something happens to you right after winning.

                          Well if you just won and have not signed or cashed the ticket anyone can turn it in with no problem.

                            I guess the thing here is that you probably don't have to worry about this problem until you actually win. Wink
