        It's gotta be a joke.

        How can $100,000 last a lifetime ?

        Then again, the poster didn't say 'without ever having to work again'.

        That said, as long as I don't quit my day job, $100,000 would last me a 'lifetime', I suppose...

        Besides, this is yet another question that has been beat to DEATH.

          "How can $100,000 last a lifetime ?"

          Suppose you've only got no family and a year to live, like the guy in NY who won the million bucks as an annuity? Every cloud has a silver lining, and the upside to a terminal illness is that some plans get a lot easier to make.  100 grand isn't enough to do all the things most people might want to do in the last year of their life, but it would certainly pay for a fairy nice year or two.

          Of course for anyone with a family and/or more than a year or two left it's going to take a lot more than 100 grand.

            I chuckled when I read your post... I hope this isn't another school project.
