(FOX 2) - A new year will mean some new rules for lotto winners eager to claim their cash.
Starting January 1, 2019, Michigan lottery winners collecting prizes over $600 will need to show identification and their Social Security card.
In the past, Medicare cards containing a Social Security number were okay - but not anymore. That's because new cards issued by Medicare don't include a Social Security number.
Acceptable forms of ID will also include a driver's license, a state ID, a CCW permit, passport and military ID.
Lotto officials say the winner's name must match the ID and social security card.
