CONCORD, N.H. — Representatives of a New Hampshire woman who won a $559.7 million Powerball jackpot and wants to remain anonymous are accepting the prize on her behalf and announcing plans for a major donation to nonprofits.

The woman's lawyers have planned a news conference at state lottery headquarters in Concord later Wednesday. The winning ticket was sold in Merrimack for the drawing on Jan. 6.

The woman will get her money as a legal fight over releasing her identity plays out in court. The New Hampshire Lottery Commission approved the payment to a trust the woman set up.

The lawyers say she signed the back of the ticket following the drawing, the nation's eighth-largest lottery jackpot, without realizing it would result in her name and address being made public.

Judge: Winner of $560M Powerball jackpot can stay anonymous .
A judge ruled Monday that a New Hampshire woman who won a Powerball jackpot worth nearly $560 million can keep her identity private, but not her hometown. Judge Charles Temple noted that the case's resolution rested on application of the state's Right-to-Know law, which governs access to public records for the woman. She was identified as "Jane Doe" in a lawsuit against the New Hampshire Lottery Commission.Temple wrote he had "no doubts whatsoever that should Ms. Doe's identity be revealed, she will be subject to an alarming amount of harassment, solicitation, and other unwanted communications.
