With all the snow and ice in the south here lately, if you hit for let's say the 2 million last night when would you try to venture out of your home to go get that check. Would you wait a week or are you one of those who thinks they can drive in the snow and ice and go the next day?

                A trust or LLC...Really?? It's just two mil, that's like 1,360,000 after tax here in NC. By the time you'd pay off bills bought new car and house and put some away for retirement you'd only have maybe 2-3 hundred thou left. Why would you need a trusy for that?

                  Shelby, a trust is a great asset for keeping your business personal. Here is a quote from an atty( Jim Ross)near Dallas that helped 2 people collect a lotto win, "In general, having a trust in place to hold large cash assets is an excellent way to maintain a degree of privacy about finances, particularly if someone is becoming accustomed to a new lifestyle."

                  While 2 million isn't much before fed taxes/state taxes. It can be an optional benefit, depending on your needs.

                  Here is a link to that entire statement for some light reading:

                  As fas as how soon I would have to venture out ?? I can wait for travel conditions to normalize and go collect on a Friday.  Naughty

                    No, too many crooks and thieves in the post office.

                    And if they don't steal it, there's a fair chance they'll lose it.

                      Rdg....LOL..you do have a point on lost mail... I swear I receive between 2-3 pcs every single week that are neighbors or a couple of streets away. I have gotten to the point where I write on the front"idiots delivered your mail to the wrong address" and put it back in the box to go out the next day. I know...I know....don't criticize, condemn, or complain.  No No

                          I Agree!

                          My experience with the USPS hasn't been pleasant either. I have had issues with registered mail, express mail, priority mail...you name it. 

                          I now only use Fed Ex on important documents.

                            There've sure been a lot of them in the news here lately.  One Postmaster was arrested for stealing gift cards.  Gift cards!  They caught her using a small Target GC that they planted to catch the thief.  I thought postmasters made quite a lot of money.  Enough they wouldn't need to be stealing $10 gift cards.
