Annuity versus cash option for Mega Millions wins
Should you be the lucky Mega Millions jackpot winner, you can pick how to be paid out. Remember that how you claim your prize may vary depending on your state.
The annuity option pays you out with an immediate payment along with 29 annual payments. Each payment is bigger by 5% than the previous payment.
The annuity option is designed as protection for your lifestyle and against inflation. So say you win $100 million. Your first payment would be $1.5 million, and future payments would grow up to approximately $6.2 million.
On the other hand, the cash option is a one-time payment.
