Don't listen to anyone except one that has been there.. Like me years ago... live simple, don't change and remember uncle sam and hawaii will take most of it... don't reward family unless this money starts working for you... invest wisely... help when someone is in desperate need only... igt give you 60 days to decide to take a 60% lump sum before taxes... 38% federal and 8.75% state... regardless you live in hawaii you'll have to pay for it if you are filing hawaii taxes... after taxes you'll end up with around $800,000... you're young I would take the annuity and move to washington or oregon where you don't pay state taxes... hawaii will always be home but your money will go farther else where... and those hungry family vultures will back off... trust me money changes every one else around you... Your dad knows how to get in touch with me if you need advice... 60 days will fly by fast... NOBODY knows unless they've been in your shoes
