I won a 6 figure dollar amount on a California Scratcher, and on the Internet it claims it can up to 14 weeks to receive your money.
I was told at the lottery office where I turned in my ticket that it would take 6 weeks, and I called the California Lottery in Sacramento, and they claimed about 7 weeks.
I received my winnings in a check from the California State Controller Disbursement Bureau in exactly 4 weeks. I took it in on a Friday, and 4 weeks to the Friday got my check.
They took out only 24% Federal Taxes, and ZERO taxes are taken out of your winnings from the State. California does not tax you for your winnings. Again, a 6 digit winnings, not a $1,000, $5,000, $20,000, but a six digit. So they are a lot faster than what you read now on the net.
