WOODBURY -

A group of Long Island co-workers say they are the lucky winners of the $437 million Mega Millions jackpot from last month.

The 23 employees at an unnamed company opted to take the lump sum payment of $262 million.

One man says despite all the cash, they still plan to work.

However, they will use some of their winnings to travel, buy a new house and set up college funds for their children.

The jackpot is the largest in New York Lottery history.
