    While that may be true, Marie made the better decision, considering anything fatal could happen to her during the long haul period of receiving yearly checks. The outrageous problem remains; the "lump sum" tax scale is simply "highway robbery."

    She's 26. She can now afford the best doctors. In 10 years she will make more than that lump sum and have more coming. That outrageous tax scale is why she should be in for the long haul. But now, hopefully, she will still live off the interest.

    All of that sounds good, except for the fact that anything fatal could happen to Marie short of the ten year period, even under the ideal condition of the best doctors care.

    The 25 Most Common Causes of Death

    #1: Heart disease
    Odds of dying: 1 in 6
    Heart disease, which is slightly more likely to result in death than cancer, is the most common cause of death in America. The good news is that the mortality rate for heart disease is decreasing. Between 1997 and 2007, deaths from heart disease fell 28 percent. During the same period, however, the number of heart procedures performed in hospitals rose 27 percent. This means that quality of care is improving, but our lifestyles are getting worse.


    #7: Falls
    Odds of dying: 1 in 184
    This category includes statistical data from #18, the category for deaths from falling off a bed, chair or other furniture and #23, the category for people falling off a building, along with any other type of unintentional fall. In 2008, 22,631 Americans died from unintentional falls, which equates to 7.5 people per 100,000.
