Is there a time limit on claiming cash prizes on scratch offs?
Hello, Luis -
The simple answer to your question is: Yes.
I hope I am safe in thinking you would like to know the time limit for claiming a cash prize for a lottery scratch-off ticket you hold. If so . . .
1. The claim time period may be printed on your scratch-off ticket.
2. Assuming you reside in the USA and the scratch-off lottery ticket was purchased in a state in the USA, the prize claiming time period will be dependent upon the rules for the particular state lottery. Meaning: You will need to check with the US state lottery information specific to your lottery ticket. That means you will need to go to the website of the lottery for the US state in question. The claiming time period will probably be in the FAQs section of the website of the particular state lottery.
Note: If you have no idea of the web address of the state lottery relevant to you, you can find it by using your favorite search engine (Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc.) and the following search phrase:
"State Name" lottery
Use quotation marks (as shown above) if the state has a 2-part name:
"South Carolina" lottery
