What to Do If You Win the Lottery
4D lucky number prediction: 1100
Sometimes, I play the lottery. Not with any real expectation of winning, but just for the fun of it and the “what if” tease that comes when some of my numbers pop up. Even though we all dream of winning the lottery, not too many of us are prepared to handle what comes next. Actually, your lucky day could turn into your unlucky day if you’re not careful. With that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the most important things you can do to prevent becoming a loser after winning.
Before claiming your prize, secular a good foundation is key to making the most of your good fortune. First of all, conserve your winning lottery ticket. Make paper copies, store digital copies, invest in a home safe or take the ticket to the bank to stock it in a safe deposit box. Once you have your ticket secured, take your time to contact the lottery authorities. This is for different reasons, but mainly to allow the media hoopla of a big winner to die down and to give yourself time to breathe and plan for your soon-to-be new life. Most lotteries give winners up to 180 or 365 days to claim their prize, therefore taking a week off before claiming yours can do a lot for your mental state.
It’s what you have always dreamed of quitting your job to retire to the islands with a cold tropical drink, right? But don’t make that decision too quickly. You have financial planning to address and you want to be sure you didn’t lapse the numbers or the date on your “winning” lottery ticket. Just remember to keep your good fortune quiet at work too. A silent smile is all you need. If not, word could get out before you’re ready and your boss may start looking for someone to replace you.
Once word gets out that you’ve won millions, you are going to hear from a lot of people with their hands out. Charities, friends, long-lost family members, work acquaintances, investment advisors, you will know from them all. Before claiming your money, change your phone number to a new, unlisted one and get a post office box for your mail. This will make it harder for some of these people to find you.
