The March 2020 payment disbursement has been delayed. We will update this message with the date the payment will be disbursed as soon as it has been determined.
Effective 3/24/20, all three PFD office locations (Juneau, Fairbanks and Anchorage) are now closed to public contact.
The PFD filing deadline is fast approaching - March 31, 2020 by 11:59 PM. DON'T DELAY FILING! This deadline is ONLY for submitting an application. **Supplemental documentation is not required by March 31st. You can mail supplemental documentation in or wait to be contacted**
The easiest way to file an application is to apply online. You will only be required to answer questions that are necessary and you get an immediate confirmation number when you submit it. Eligible online applications that select direct deposit as their payment method will be paid in the FIRST October payment, October 1, 2020.
However, due to the circumstances facing this country and with offices and locations throughout the state closing down for at least the next couple weeks, the division has decided, for this year only, to make the paper 2020 PFD applications available to print from the FORMS tab on our website for those who are unable to file online. The filing deadline is still MARCH 31. Mailed in 2020 PFD applications MUST be postmarked by March 31st in order to be considered timely. REMINDER: Eligible paper applications will be paid in the SECOND October payment, October 22, 2020.
Our mission is 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.
