Even After Winning $5 Million Lottery Jackpot, Teacher Still Plans on Working
Brenda Simpson will choose between a lump sum or yearly payout of $250,000 for the next 20 years.
A teacher in Ohio is insisting she will still be going to work despite winning a $5 million lottery jackpot.
Brenda Simpson purchased the winning $20 scratch-off ticket Thursday. After announcing her victory to her co-workers at the school, they all asked if she was going to come into work on Friday.
“I still plan to work, but I told my husband he can retire,” she said in a statement.
She said she plans on paying off her home and maybe purchasing a house for her daughter.
Simpson can now choose between a payment of $250,000 a year for 20 years or a lump sum. The store that sold her the ticket will earn a $10,000 bonus, according to the state lottery.
