Set it up in one of those funds that pays out a certain amount of several years. I forget what they are called.

You're joking, Ray.
With that amount of money you don't have to worry about piddling little things like interest rates and boring stuff....
Let your imagination fly!


I think you are looking for the word annuity.

As for you CF, that is what a whole lot of people who win this kind of money do. They usually wind up broke again, sooner or later, usually sooner tho I guess that amount it might take longer.

Ray has the right idea tho I don't think I would go about it his way. I would invest most of it tho and then live off the proceeds and when you do that you have to pay attention to interest rates and all that other boring stuff.
