You go to a competent attorney first and
establish a living trust and have the trust
claim the winning ticket. The trust never
dies and then the trust pays you.
Even that might not insure your privacy.
According to the NY lottery rules:
- 2803.12 Publicity release Each prize winner grants to the director the right to use his name, city of residence, and photograph in order to publicize his winnings. The name and city of residence of prize winners shall be regarded as public information; however, it shall be the policy of the division not to release the street address or telephone number of prize winners, except as may be required pursuant to lawful authority or urgent necessity. At the discretion of the director, photographs of winners may be taken and used for publicity or to compile a photographic record of winners.
If your trust is the "prize winner" then your trust is subject to the publicity release.
And if you win a hundred million dollars, trust or no trust, I'll guarantee that your photo will somehow reach the front page of the NY Post and Daily News.
if I want to establish 'living trust' is
there extra tax/fee or any other expense
For a simple living trust the lowest attorney fee I've seen is about $700 but you can probably count on fees ranging from $1000 and up.
