Just retired from the medical field.  I would pay off some bills and as a Third World Medical Missionary I would help provide assistance to rebuilding the Emergency Room in Haiti that was destroyed by the earthquake.

The first thing I'd do is pay off all my bills including the Solar installation.  Then I'd sock a bit away for a rainny day or my "old age".   I'd also put some into Mon's checking account to keep her well cared for in Assisted Living.  

 

I'd definitely donate some to my favorite charities if there way any left over from that.

I support my local food bank and several animal shelters, children and of course my March of Dimes which I have volunteere for since 1993 knowing the story of my own birth.

The very 1st thing....pay off all of my daughter's debt and her college tuition. She moved 900 miles to go to school and even took on a job at Lowe's to help her cause. It would absolutely make her life a lil easier. Ahhh, the power of suggestion :0)

Depending on the amount, at least half of it would go into some type of savings. Then some of it would be used to make some home improvements. For example, if it was $50,000 it would get split

like I said. Any larger amount would bring in a good financial advisor to discuss options in addition to making the home improvements.
