Crack addict wins lottery - Should he take the lump sum or annuity?


NY maintenance worker to get $5 million jackpot
quote:

testified he was addicted to crack cocaine

Which would you take if you were a crack addict and why?

$250,000 annuity over 20 years or a lump sum of $2.1 million after taxes?

he needs to take the annuity. I would always take the lump sum and invest it, myself, but a crackhead can't even trust hisself

He needs to take the lump sum. If he gets arrested, he will lose it all. The lottery offices have rules against funding illegal activities. That's why people should always take the lump sum..

Doesn't matter. He will OD within the year.

Regardless, having all of this extra cash will ultimately kill him. Does it even matter?

I'd take the lump sum but I'd advise a crackhead to take the annuity.

Why would anyone ever want to ingest crack cocaine?

Maybe he will use the money to get help, and turn his life around.

Pretty misleading title. He was addicted to crack 6 years ago when he turned in the ticket and had it stolen. He appears to be clean today. It might be the delay in getting the money that saved his life.



Looks normal to me.
