  • For what? You're wife ran you over with a car? :D
    If that is true which I doubt and you could of put yourself at risk... You deposit through the bank with most of it, pay off bills or buy a new house and car, maybe start up a business and give some to family (or get something nice) That is what I would do if I had 💸

    • lol not a wife just some random person on my lunch break. i was walking on the side walk and she just ran me over, then for good measure she reversed over me. so yeah im in a lot of shittyness right now but fuck did my lawyer come through

    • Show All
    • my arms work lol but the walking part is not going well

    • So you haveto update your home to accomodate you... all these things to worry about- just talk to a financial bank advisor.

  • Save. That. Shit.
    Pay off all of your bills (and/or parents/relatives bills) first. Sell your car and get one you would like having. Get a SLIGHTLY big house if you want, you don't need a mansion.
    Plan a vacation. Visit a country you would have never seen had you not gotten money.
    Do something good with your money

  • You should really talk to a CPA so you don't lose it all to taxes and then go from there.

  • You were *awarded* that money by the judge, or it actually hit your bank account already? Those two are very different things. If you already have the money in the bank, I would hire an accountant. And be very careful about new friends who just want to help you spend that new money! Pay your taxes, your lawyer, and your medical bills first, set aside 20% for savings and 25% for investing, and have fun with whatever is left. Congrats!

  • Holy fuck dudeman. Good job.
    You could live rich ($200k a year) for 44 years off of that.
    So maybe you could live almost-rich for the rest of your life.

    Or just invest it/mutual fund and live off the interest?

    Just... be wise.

  • I've been on the internet long enough not to believe that for one second.

    If you are telling the truth, though, don't spend it without getting a job and investing, because inflation will take most of that away over the next 50-60 years of your lfie.

  • Get yourself a Financial Adviser and put that money in a bank or safe investment account. I would go with a Roth IRA. Better yet ask someone like Suze Orman or Dave Ramsey about this. I don't really now much about sums that big. But if you're in the USA I would consider putting the money in separate accounts since the FDIC only insures deposits up to $250,000.

  • Lol well I'm in debt so my obvious answer is gimme some, duh :p

    But i would keep my job cuz there's security in it, it's a pretty good one.

    I'd get my family all squared away money wise and then get modest yet classy living arrangements that would work within my means. Same with car.

    Then I'd just have fun, freedom and security! n_n

  • Invest! Don't quit yet. Most lottery wins end up broke because they quit their jobs and end up spending all of their money. Invest, once you have a solid income and base from that for your retirement, then quit.
