+73 Would you claim take the $572 million annuity or $308.9 million lump sum if you win tonight's PowerBall?

I would personally claim the lump sum because I am old enough that I would not want to have to worry about buying life insurance to cover the taxes on the present value of the annuity if I died unexpectedly, so that my family would not be caught off guard by the hefty estate tax, but I wonder how...

+16 Lets talk about specifics.. Immediately sign the ticket or not?

I think most folks here prefer to use a trust to hold the money instead of the funds sitting in a bank account in their name. If you sign the ticket with your real name, can you still have lawyers pick up the cash later and also sign the name of your trust/LLC on top of your name on the ticket a...
