Lottery Payout Options​

Winning the lottery, a sweepstakes, or a casino jackpot prize is a life changing experience. For many people, there are more lottery payout options available to them. Which is better? Take the lump sum or the annuity? You and your advisors are the only ones who can decide which option best suits your financial situation; but if you choose an annuity, Peachtree can help you access other options.

Get a Lump Sum

Did you want a lump sum, but your game did not offer a cash option? Did your needs change after winning and you need access to cash? Getting a lump sum for your remaining payments can help you deal with an emergency expense or finance goals such as purchasing a home or car.

You can also take advantage of another financial opportunity such as placing those assets in high-yield investments like real estate and stocks.

Annuity + Lump Sum

Want a consistent income stream but need a lump sum of cash to meet your financial goals? State lotteries require you to make an all or nothing choice; but with Peachtree, you can get the best of both worlds. 

By selling only a portion of your prize payments, you can get a lump sum and still receive annuity payments.

The Tax Deferred Option

This option is available to lottery winners who want to sell their annuity payment for a lump sum but only need a portion of the lump sum and want to invest the rest. It combines the ability to receive a lump sum with an investment. 

With this program, you can also set up when and how often you receive payments from your investment.*
