If you sign your lottery ticket when you buy it, and it turns out to be a winner, is it too late to have a trust claim the ticket? I don't sign my tickets because, if im lucky enough to win one day i would want to be anonymous. Anyone else have this dilemma?

    Just a suggestion but you should always sign your lotto tickets just in case you lose the winning ticket; lately there have been several stories on LP about lost and redeem tickets not properly signed.  Also,  I would contact your state lotto district office and ask this question about claiming the winning ticket anonymously.

      i agree, you may think about the hassle of not being able to claim in a trust. but how about if the ticket is lost and you dont get to claim the prize at all?

        Wow, almost four years since my last post. Anyway, I don't think the signature is part of the public record. I know anyone would have a hard time reading my signature.  As "owner" of the trust you would have the legal right to sign the ticket. The public record would be the name of the trust. So sign it.

          Guys, in most states, if not all, the ticket is a bearer instrument.  That means that whoever has possession of it has the legal right to it.  Further, if you sign it, only YOU can claim the winnings.  Best advice, copy it, put it in safety deposit box, and see your lawyer/counselor.
