US lottery: Search on for $640m jackpot winners
How to spend your jackpot
- Try to stay anonymous. If your identity gets out, it can be hard to escape the attention - and those who want some of your fortune
- Take the money over time - 98% of jackpot winners choose instant payout options, but most people run through that money in five years or less. You can make better use of the money, and plan better, by taking the prize in annual instalments. It can sometimes also be better from a tax perspective to receive the prize over time
- Find a financial adviser, or ideally a set of advisers, who have experience working with assets as valuable as your prize. Many winners ask their friends or people they know to help them manage their money, but they are not equipped to help you make the best decisions
- Use some, or preferably most of the money to give back to society. The happiest winners are usually the ones who used their money for public good.
