Thank you Perfecttiming!!  Even though every state is different, I'm sure there ARE some similarities.  I printed out your post and put it with my "what to do when I win the lottery" file! :)

Hey.............so nice to know that I am not the only one who has a file like that!

    I'm a girl that believes in being prepared! Wink  Plus, when we do win, I don't want to be running around, like the proverbial chicken with my head cutoff....although I'm sure I won't be my calmest either.

      I agree with you 100%!!!!!!!!

      Have you ever read the book "Sudden Money" by Susan Bradley?

      If not , you should get it...........it is one of the best books on how to handle a "sudden money event" like winning the lottery.

      Ms. Bradley is a financial planner with a clientele of those who have experienced "enormous sudden wealth".

      In her book she has all kinds of real-life examples of mistake others have made and how you should avoid them.

      She also addresses the psychological effects of winning a large some of money, the reasons behind it and how to handle it.

      If anyone really believes that they are going to win, now is the time to prepare for it.....and this book is a great start!

        You are so right....

        After some further investigating I did find that your "Trust" can actually be owned by another "Trust" to make it difficult for the true ownership of the first Trust to be revealed.

        In other words, anyone who wanted to know who owns the first Trust would only come across the name of another "Trust" (example: "WinnerCircle Trust" is owned by the "ABC Trust").

        Even better is to have the second trust that owns the original jackpot collecting trust be located in an offshore entity.  That way anyone that wants to find out who the garrantor of that trust is will have to go deal with the legal system in the country where the trust is located.   Even better, because coutries with good trust laws make the possibility of success in getting your identity very remote, most lawyers won't even try.

        Be sassy and be happy.

          I have a very common name, like John Smith...(everytime I try to make a dang doctor's appt or haircut appt, there's thousands of us...they have to use my birthday, for goodness sakes'!) but I just worry about the safety of my children.

          I think I would have to force myself to hideout, maybe somewhere tropical.  Sigh.  It would be so rough! Wink

          Are they still young(by that I mean are they still your dependents)?  If so, then just take them into "exile" with you.

          Be sassy and be happy.

            Re: "What to do when I win the lottery" files, add this book to the must reads:

            Infinite Financial Freedom

            What To Do Before And After You Win the Lottery

            by Robert Sanford, Ceritified Financial Planner

            He gives a real good example of people winning the same amount of money and giving the same amount of money to a charity, but one donation is a straight cash one and the other is a trust, big difference.

            This is also the only thing I've ever seen that suggests Kidnap & Ransom insurance.

            This has been mentioned here but I felt it was worth repeating.

            Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

            Lep

            There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
