Permenant Fund Dividends to be Sent Out on Thursday

    Juneau, AK (KINY) Direct deposit users should have the PFD in their account sometime on Thursday; checks will be sent out in the mail on Thursday as well.

    The 2017 Permanent Fund Dividend of $1100.00 should be in accounts sometime on Thursday if signed up for direct deposit, otherwise the payment goes in the mail on Thursday.

    It will be the 36th Dividend payment.

    Permanent Fund Dividend Division Director, Sara Race, said the first payment amounting to $1,000 was made in 1982.  We also asked how much the 36 payments would amount to. "It would amount to $41,221.41," she said.

    The highest dividend amounting to $2,072 was paid out in 2015.

    Governor Walker vetoed half of the dividend funding for the 2016 payment of $1,022. This year's $1,100 payment was set by the Legislature.
