    Each winner is not going to receive $8.1 million a year. Each winner will receive about $830,000 before taxes.

    Someone needs to brush up on their math skills.

    Okay,
    216 million divided by 10 equals $21.6 million each. So how do they get 8.1 million EACH over the next 26 years? That would be $216 million EACH. Or was the total jackpot just over $2 billion? Is this how CHUBB is getting TARP money?

    Not really when Obama will raise the tax’s to about 78% on this group. Trust me they will all have to continue to work.

    For the next 10 years NOW ONE will be able to become rich (or want to).

    if they do continue to work, they’ll have entirely different attitude. MPRT enhancements no longer forthcoming!

    The only bottom line that really counts is CONGRATULATIONS to the ten winners.

    One of the few ways someone can get rich in this business without selling.

    I wonder if any of them went into their bosses office, jumped up on the desk and “proclaimed their independence”.

    I would. Then I’d take my winnings and buy a 30% share in AIG and go run the PCG.

    The ulimate jackpot was $216 mill as an annuity. But, if you take it in a lump sum, it is a smaller amount. If you do the math, you can figure out the lump sum amount. I guess the reporter forgot to get that bit of detail.

    Headline: Chubb employee gets a “chubb” when he realized he had the winning numbers!” Bhah ha ha.

    I wonder what it is like to work at insurance company who’s namesake now means a partial erection in modern day slang.

    LOL you two can’t even read/comprehend properly. Where exactly does it say that each winner gets $8M/year? “The winners should get about $8.1 million a year, before taxes, to share for the next 26 years from their lucky purchase.”

    To share. It’s funny that you think the editors are the morons who don’t proofread…

    You’re reading it too late. It USED to say $8.1 million a year EACH. The editors changed it when observant readers picked up the gaff. Happens all the time. Don’t make accusations before knowing all the facts.

    Actually Guy, I read this article on Fox News Wednesday night and jumped over to IJ to see if they were already covering. The article read as it does now. I even double-taked on the questionable sentence; at first I read it to mean that each winner was getting $8.1M/yr, but then I re-read. And that’s what the Mathematician & Editor should’ve done – paid attention.

    I don’t know what it said Wednesday (and remember, there are two articles), but yesterday, three commenters plus myself, saw $8.1 million annually EACH in this article. Hard to say four people misread it.

    When I read this yesterday it did say $8.1 million EACH for 26 years. The editors changed it after my comment.

    Guys I’m just playing around now…I didn’t know there was a correction made until the mathman mentioned it this morning. And he’s right, there were two separate articles. Hope everybody can lighten up a bit and hey, maybe even LOL at some point today.

    To the person writing the story: Mega Millions has a LUMP-SUM option. Almost all MM jackpot winners choose cash. Many financial experts are predicting high inflation in the near future. As insurance company employees, they probably know that choosing annuity if winning the lottery has a very small upside, but a huge downside.

    Why do comments posted to almost any article on any online news journal turn negative?! Get a grip! Congratulations to the winners. I’m happy for you — and a bit jealous!!
