An old guy down the street from me won it once, but died before the second annuity check showed up.

People do win that stuff.

Is that before or after taxes?

The people that win the PCH are always older than Methusla.

I swear they pick the ancient folks so they don't have to pay out.

First thing I'd do is take about 3200 a week and invest it.

$260,000.00 per year is a lot of money for most people. One could live quite well on that and have a lot left over to invest.

I know the owner of PCH. She was sued a number of years ago due to tricking people to sign up and then not actually have a winner. She is a huge contributer to the arts scene in SRQ. One of the actors she sponsored was a part of the class action suit against her.

That would give you only 240,000 for the year. How the hell anyone could make a living off that, is preposterous!

Pfft. YOU might have to. That'd set me up very well indeed. Instant retirement, no worries about money,
and given my habits, absolutely no chance that I'd spend it faster than it came in. No, I am adept at living in comfort
on a small budget. My small fortune would only grow, and grow, and grow. I'm anything but a big spender.

Believe me when I say if I got 5k a week, pre tax or not, for the rest of my life you wouldn't see me in the work force ever again.

I might be able to build the house I want with 5k a week for life but I'd still need to work cover "running" costs.

Why would you need to invest it? I mean...it's for life. And now...for your child's life as well....

Why settle? One day, 5k a week will be nothing. I'd plan on being well ahead by that time.

The expenses sneak up, even if you're zealously watchful. I know people who make twice that and still have bills, money problems, living paycheck to paycheck, etc.

It's always easier to spend the money faster than it comes in than it is to stay on a budget.

Because even as the bills stack up (NOBODY is going to live on $20K per month when they can borrow against that revenue stream), inflation will be eating away at it.

If you divert half to investments, live off the rest, and not get yourself in too much trouble, you could maintain a standard of living. If you start off living off of all of it, you'll quickly get used to it, make "just one" big purchase... and it's all downhill from there.

I'd keep working, but I wouldn't feel I really had to anymore. But I would keep working, since I make good money and like my job. I'd live off my paycheck, and throw the winnings at my mortgage. Once my debts were all paid off, I'd supplement my income with part of the winnings and sock most of it away as a reserve/retirement nest egg.

Yeah, I would probably just go pick up the loot myself; what else are you going to do with your time at $5K a week? It's a road trip! Whaddya got to lose?

If it takes money to get that, then money is wasted on that person.
