Hyper:

I think there are ways to have MORE THAN one FDIC-insured account in the same bank...joint? trust?

Those who might "prefer" annuity should take the LUMP SUM anyway, and then SHOP AROUND for an annuity, but use only part of your winnings to buy it.

    that's a cool idea, best of both worlds...

    then YOU can pick the terms of the annuity, live LARGE and still have the safety net afforded by a guaranteed income... I like it!
