The first 2017 PFD dividend disbursement begins on Thursday, October 5, 2017.
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 22, 2017, those applications are being paid on October 5, 2017. Any applications determined "Eligible" after September 22, 2017 through noon on October 20, 2017 will be disbursed on October 26, 2017. 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 5th as well, allow time for the USPS to deliver. If you selected direct deposit and the bank rejects the deposit on October 5, 2017, the disbursement will go out in the next payment run on October 26, 2017 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.
To administer the permanent fund dividend program assuring that all eligible Alaskans receive timely dividends; fraud is prosecuted; and all internal and external stakeholders are treated with respect.
