Where the Money Goes:

We’re dreaming of a stronger, safer, smarter Indiana. Every year since 1989, Hoosier Lottery funds have supported the pension funds for retired Indiana firefighters, police and teachers. Thanks in part to Lottery players, Hoosiers pay about 50 percent less in vehicle excise taxes every year.

*Based on prizes claimed by Indiana winners, sales commissions earned by Indiana retailers, payments made to Indiana vendors, and the net income contributed to the State. Allocation per dollar: $.62 prizes paid, $.25 to good causes (Police & Fire Pensions, Teacher's Retirement Fund, Build Indiana Fund) and $.07 retailer commissions. The remaining $.06 goes towards other expenses. All financial figures based on Fiscal Year 2012. Allocations and methodology independently reviewed by Koehler Partners.
Not all counties have local police and fire teams, and therefore not all counties have an allocation for those pension funds. Those counties are: Benton, Brown, Crawford, Franklin, Harrison, Jasper, Lagrange, Newton, Ohio, Orange, Owen, Parke, Pulaski, Spencer, Switzerland, Union and Warren.
