Where if you never had to hit it again, you could walk away and say at least l am comfortable for the rest of my life?

Personally : $ 35 Mil and above* after both taxes. How about you?

*** Be realistic, dispense of the Bull by saying $200 mil..   Thanks in advance.

      A person's age makes a huge difference in the amount needed, IMHO. A 20-year old would need considerably more than a 60-year old.

      I've always had good personal financial discipline, so I could live out my days on $2 million after taxes. I wouldn't be living in a mansion or driving a Ferrari, but I would be comfortable.

          I agree with you, just need enough to relax and slow down to enjoy the simple things in life.

            1/4 of a million would be fine for me.  I play for 5 white balls.

                After taxes I'd say $7,000 a week for life would be nice. But once you get that second girlfriend then all the money in the world will never be enough..that polygamy instinct is the destroyer of man

                That money's gone fo ever

                  Simple solution: Keep the 2nd gf on retainer.

                   

                  re·tain·er
                  r?'tan?r/
                  noun
                  1. 1.
                    a thing that holds something in place.
                    "a guitar string retainer"
                  2. 2.
                    a fee paid in advance to someone, especially an attorney, in order to secure or keep their services when required.

                    LOL no, I wish I knew how though.  I'm older, retired, not in  the best of health. I like where I  live.  My  house and car are paid for.

                      Very good question Noise...I'd say personally at least 180 million after taxes. Why so much? Well I have 2 sisters and a brother I plan on splitting it with then they have money so they wont have to come to me all the time and neither will their kids. Other family members either, I can tell them well I gave money to my sibs, have you asked them?? It shoud come to just under 50 million a piece hopefully after taxes and if they blew thru that...well all I could say is that I split it with them and got as much as they did so there should not be any fighting over it

                        $55-$65 million after taxes should suffice. There is quite a few of people I would like to help out. Plus investments and other stuff.

                          You would need to win at least 400 million or more (depending on the state) for you to get back $180 million after tax. Plus more tax on top of that when giving/spiting any money with family.

                              I'm thinking around $5-10M after taxes would set me for life. In North Carolina that would be good living and traveling finances. Not to mention starting my own business to bring in more finances
