How To Claim Lottery Winnings Anonymously In Massachusetts

Winning the lottery is, of course, something to celebrate. Once the reality has sunk in, you may also realize that there are practical considerations to address. If you have won money in the Massachusetts lottery, there may be a requirement to disclose the identity of the winning ticket holder, including their photograph. These photos may be placed on the state Lottery Commission websites. Having your identity on the internet can pose a safety and security risk for you.

Thankfully, there is a way around the disclosure requirement. At Mignanelli & Associates, Ltd., our attorneys have successfully used anonymous trusts to allow lottery winners to remain completely anonymous while having immediate access to their lottery winnings. We value your privacy and safety and will collaborate closely with you to protect your interests.

It’s no secret that a large percentage of lottery winners end up squandering their money within a few years. Suddenly having to manage a sizeable sum of money can be a major adjustment for most people. It’s wise to work with professionals who can advise you on how to make the most of your gains.
