The checks going out in a week are to Alaskans who are eligible for the 2023 or earlier PFD payment but did not receive it during prior disbursements. The program began sending its 2023 payments to eligible residents in October.
Residents who had the “Eligible-Not Paid” status by Wednesday and have yet to receive their PFD check from 2023 or earlier will get their check from the program on Jan. 18, per the state.
Applications for the 2024 Permanent Fund Dividend are currently open until March 31 for eligible residents. Alaskans can apply for the program by filling out an application online or via paper form.
