Major prize winners sign an Affidavit of Eligibility to confirm their identity and eligibility to win. Principals and employees of Publishers Clearing House, its affiliates and subsidiaries, contest processors, their immediate families and the Board of Judges are not eligible to win the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes.

A PCH Affidavit of Eligibility also includes sections acknowledging that taxes are the winner’s responsibility and granting permission to use the name and likeness of the winner in promotional materials.

For prizes of $600.00 and above, winners must sign an Affidavit of Eligibility prior to receiving the prize. Winners must be located and sign an Affidavit of Eligibility within 30 days or PCH will select an alternate winner.
