Lottery Win Claim Forms

In most States you can claim lottery prizes of up to $600 at participating retailers. However, for prizes over $600 you may need to complete a Claim Form and send, or take, it along with your prize winning ticket along to one of the States' claim centers or Lottery District Office.

You can download a claim form for each state using the table below - all forms are in PDF format, so you will need a PDF reader

Guidlines for How to Claim Safely

  • Sign the back of your ticket as soon as you purchase it, and keep it in a safe place. A lottery ticket is a bearer instrument, so if it's not signed, anyone with the ticket can claim any prize won. Fully complete any other required information on the back of the ticket.
  • Fill out a claim form if required - see your state below for details. Some states also require copies of a government-issued photo ID and a document verifying your Social Security Number.
  • Make a copy of all items for your records (or take a clear photo on your phone), including the front and back of the ticket. You'll need to mail or take the original ticket and claim form to the lottery.
  • For claims by mail include your return address on the envelope. Use certified or registered mail to track your envelope - lotteries aren't responsible for lost claims.
