If a person dies who has lottery winnings, who get the money?
What happens when a person dies who has millions of dollars in lottery winnings. Does the family receive that money or does it go back to the state lottery?
It depends on the state. Many states pay for 20 years until death. Then, of course, the easy way out of this is to take winnings in one lump sum of cash, then do with it as you please.
I think it would depend on the rules of the individual state. Some may allow it to go to the person's estate, but I'll bet most have a clause that prohibits that if payments on the winnings are made over time. LindaSmith is right, one could avoid that with a lump sum payout.
