There are times that I'm so confident that my numbers are going to come up, that I show up at the lottery office the day before the drawing to cash

in my winnings. Sometimes they give me a hard time, insisting that the numbers haven't been drawn yet!  Argue

 

What's up with that.   Angry    Don't they believe anyone now days.  What?

Tailgating at the lotto office!! Count me in.

    When I am blessed with the oppportunity to win it all, it will take about 3-4 months for me to claim the ticket.   It takes about 2 - 3 months to find and train a replacement for work.   Another month to pack up the household and make plans to leave the day the ticket is claimed.

     

    Reality, it took the NC Prison Guard about 4 months to get her affairs and family protection in order before claiming her ticket.

      At my own convenience, when the mood strikes me.

      And I'll be strapped, open and concealed, just like always.

      And with no sleazy, slimy, slithering, undulating, writhing, squirming lawyers in tow either.

        You will claim your jackpot without lawyers? That is very intriguing.

          Not really intriguing as much as it is liberating. 

          I just don't like clingy hangers-on, parasites, big productions, endless small-talk and long goodbyes.

          I like to keep things simple.

                  no massive  jackpots, here, and no complicated tax problems. did I mention the tick box to remain anonymous on the back of the ticket. there is a 6 week claim time while they do what ever security checks they need to  to see if you are actually the  owner of the ticket. or that there is no other claimant out there.

                  so after you submit the ticket should be 6 weeks, wait, then either a cheque or bank wire.

                   

                  so for us its ASAP. and during that 6 weeks seek out financial planning advice, etc. if the plan isnt in place then several bank accounts to spread the money around. and wait for a better plan.

                   

                  If i was in usa , yeah i might have to wait untill all my ducks are ina row before claiming,.  trust funds, for people i want to get something,. trust funds for myself.
