is it morally 'right' not to tell anyone(including your parents).

 

For example: if you think your folks may  lend money to others if they found out you won(and you've come to the conclusion that they've given out money to cousins/aunts/their kids often) and you want to save so you won't have to work all your life.

 

Maybe it would be wise to just tell them you won the 100,000 instead of the 1 million so that you can still give them some, but they won't give it out?

I haven't won a million dollars, I am just seeking advice from the wise folk on lotteryforum.

      Well after tax you'll only have about $750,000 or even less.

          The way I feel about it is my personal finances are my business.

          Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

            IMO having a million (even less after tax) it's not worth mentioning. Just put it into a CD account and save save save.
