A large multi-million dollar prize can dramatically change your life. With fifty million dollars properly invested, you could spend approximately one million dollars per year for the rest of your life. That corresponds to about 83 thousand dollars per month. Unfortunately, many people who win big prizes do not have experience handling financial transactions and they lose their fortunes by making unwise purchases and investments. Buying a 10 million dollar home, for example, is not a fixed expense. Such an expensive home will have a high real estate tax and high maintenance costs. Significant monthly expenses will be required for taxes, utilities, gardeners, house cleaners and repairmen. A fifty million dollar jackpot will soon vanish without sound financial planning.
The first thing that you should do if you win a big prize is to write your name, address and signature on the winning ticket. Then, lock it up in a safe place, and contact a tax attorney that can advise you how to pay the minimum tax on your prize. Your next stop should be with a financial planner that will help you make a list of financial priorities such as paying off credit cards and mortgages, and to suggest some investment options that will provide you income for life. Think carefully before you invest. Any investment has some risk of losing money. Also, you will not have easy access to your capital while your funds are invested.
