Newly Enacted Law Allows
Georgia Lottery Winners to Trade
Future Payments for Upfront Cash

HB 515 Has Been Signed Into Law:
HB 515

May 13, 2008: NEW Most large Georgia lottery prizes are paid in annual installments over twenty or more years. Today (May 13, 2008) Governor Perdue signed HB 515 into law, affording Georgia lottery winners a new cash option, giving winners the ability to sell their right to future prize payments. Modeled on statutes in more than twenty other lottery states, the new law requires that every such transaction be presented to and approved in advance by a court.

Now Georgia winners will have the flexibility to decide for themselves whether they should wait for their annual payments or sell their rights for cash, upfront and in a lump sum.
