a) The right of any person to receive payments under a prize that is paid in installments over time by the Department may be voluntarily assigned up to a total of two times, in whole or in part, if the assignment is made to a person or entity designated pursuant to an order of a court of competent jurisdiction located in the judicial circuit where the assigning prize winner resides or where the headquarters of the Department is located. All contracts of assignment submitted to the Department pursuant to Section 13.1 of the Lottery Law shall be accompanied by a sworn affidavit of the assignee in a form substantially similar to that set forth in Appendix A.
