Don't I have a year to claim the jackpot?

Most states only give you 180 days to claim the prize. There are some states that do allow a winning ticket to be claimed within 1-year. If someone had a 1 year option to claim and the grace period ended on a weekend they would be out of luck.

People in general would agree that it would be insane to wait until the very last day to claim a prize especially one this size.

    It depends on the state you live in. Click on USA MEGA on the left side of the page. Lots of good info...

      Maryland gives you 182 days, New Mexico 90 days.

        Not necessarily. The winning ticket could be mailed (and postmarked) on a Sat.

            I'll be sure to hire a really good lawyer to represent me and claim the money anonymously. It would be insane not to, as they kill for much less than $600 million in Chicago.  Now that I'm thinking about it, a much smaller winner here was killed by his own family.  WTF  !!!

              I cant think of a BETTER way to go. I will be waving a check, and if they kill me they kill me.
