    Of course we all know there 2 ways you can recieve your winnings, take the lump sum or recieve it over 20 yrs. I learned today that if you take it over 20 yrs and if something were happen to you your family would still recieve it. I can see it know if I won I might "accidently" fall down the stairs 5 or 6 times in a row.

    This is true but if you take payments and have an 'accident' the estate would be responsible for any taxes do on the balance of winnings. I would take payments though.payup

    I want the lump sum. I know what the taxes are now, I don't know what they will be in 20 years. Not to mention I don't trust the lottery to have my money 15-20 years from now. The RI pension system has really opened my eyes.

    Money is put in to an annuity ,state does not hold the money, i think? So if the prize 1 million and take payment the state puts 500k in to the annuity and grows ,its then divided by the 26 payments. Now it you lump it, the state gives you the amount that was going in to the annuity and gives it to you.

    Time value of money dictates that you should take the lump sum payout.
