Ways to stay anonymous:

1. Don't cash the ticket.  Instead, frame it with one of the numbers obscured, and hang it in your office. 
2. Give it to someone you can trust, like me to cash in.

That's wild. Just curious does this also happen to be a struggling institution?

"TicketS" "numberS"
NumberS does not connote multiple tickets being that even one ticket has numberS on it. Now the "their" before the "numbers" and "tickets" as u pointed out do imply a seperate ticket for each one.

They could have done that with one ticket total. 477*0=0

If I was a parent, I'd be furious.  You mean I might not have a school to send my kids to tomorrow?
The lump sum is less than $2m per staff member, before taxes and beforethe mosad's "cut". I hope no one's retiring off that.

You can easily retire on that, if you have a competent financial manager.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

I didn't mean retire at 65. I meant retire at whatever the average age is for the staff members there (surely a lot lower).

I'm aware. If you invest that properly, you can live reasonably comfortably off that.

IMO 65 year old empty nesters might be able to retire off that and live off interest but young jewish families with huge expenses not so much.

Truth is, i was thinking of $2M, not whatever number you end up with. However, i do think you can live off that. 8% a year on $1.5M is $120k gross.

Making 8% on a reasonably safely diversified portfolio, or living off the earnings of that?

There is no safe investment today yielding 8%.
