    Congrats on the win! Not sure how it works in some states but here in NY they give you a check after verification.

      What satate are you in?

       

      In Mi you go to the lottery head quarters- show them Id and social security card and they cut you a check.  And they give you something to turn in with your taxes.

        This is in California based on OP's profile

        I believe you give them your claim form and the ticket, and after a few weeks you get a check in the mail

              Also another thing you probably don't want to hear :) but the check you receive will be for $750 and not $1,000 because they withhold 25% tax

                If I had a $1,000 winner I can guarantee you I'd be on the phone with the lottery people getting the correct information as far as how to cash it, where to go, etc,  instead of posting  a question about it on a message board!

                Go cash in that ticket already!

                      When I won 2nd chance I was sent a check for the full 1,000.i think you pay the tax when you prepare them in April.

                        Well I haven't won any 2nd chance or big prize (yet) but I looked in the claim form and it says they withhold 25% tax

                              I doubt it. Have seen this type of thread many, many times and they rarely come back with the 'facts, ma'am'...LOL
