Our Lottery Annuity Cash Converter Methodology

Unlike random generators, our lottery annuity cash converter has to be accurate and based on exact science. We can divide our methodology into two sections according to your choice to verify how much you would receive with a one-time payment or being paid in annuities:  

  1. Lump-sum Payments:
    1. The gross payout, which is the starting point from any annuity or lump-sum lottery payment, is considered with an immediate 40% reduction from the announced jackpot for lump sums. That is just the counterpart of choosing full payment straight away and simple to code into our cash converter.
    2. Final reduction due to lottery taxes that deduct 24% to 30% from federal taxes plus possible state tax depending on where you played.
  2. Annuity: Simpler to explain but harder to calculate, it is applied by our cash converter using the following tested formula:
    Payout Year N = Gross payout / [(1 − 1.0530) / 0.05] × 1.05^n−1
    From that amount, each year has the deduction of the corresponding federal and state tax. As years go by, the amount increases according to that formula.

Complex for you or not, all those calculations are unnecessary if you simply put our online lottery annuity cash converter to work with your information.
