  • Yearly! I tend to spend money like its going out of style, so if I got payments, I would be good

  • I would take it all upfront. I believe in living in the present.

  • I'd take it lump sum because my understanding is that it does not pass to your heirs. It cuts off when you die.... I'd want my heirs to have some of the money too.

  • Up front because I'm in Canada and it's tax free.
