2018 Disbursement

The 2018 PFD amount is $1,600.

The first 2018 PFD disbursement begins on Thursday, October 4, 2018.

Please check your application status in myPFD to ensure your application has been determined yet.  "Undetermined" applications are still being worked.  If your application is in an "Eligible" for payment status, that means a final determination has been made.  If your application was "Eligible" as of September 21, 2018, those applications are being paid on October 4, 2018.  Any applications determined "Eligible" after September 21, 2018 through noon on October 19, 2018 will be disbursed on October 25, 2018.  We disburse dividends on a monthly basis.

If you selected direct deposit, make sure to check all bank accounts you may have if it is not in the account you expected.  Checks are being mailed from Juneau on October 4th as well, allow time for the USPS to deliver.  If you selected direct deposit and the bank rejects the deposit on October 4, 2018, the disbursement will go out in the next payment run on October 25, 2018 as a check.  If you requested a check and have a new mailing address, submit an address change form to the division so your check can be forwarded to you.

Address Change - if the mailing address you provided the division is incorrect, submit a completed Address Change form that is available on our Forms page or electronically through myPFD.
