For 2022, that amount was $3,284.

While next year’s payment hasn’t been determined, it’s likely to be less.


All year-round residents of Alaska may apply for the payment.

There are several ways to apply:

Americans are lining up to receive a one-time direct payment of between $500 and $1,000
Americans can start claiming $800 a month in direct payments — see who qualifies
  • Post: If you choose to send your application by post, it must be received or postmarked by today, March 31st.
  • Online: You can also apply electronically online until 11:59 p.m. this evening. You must first create a MyAlaska account to apply online.
  • In person: You can go to the PFD offices which are open Monday to Friday from 10am to 4pm.


To be eligible for a PFD, you must have been an Alaska resident for the entire calendar year prior to the date you are claiming a dividend.

You must also intend to remain an Alaskan resident indefinitely at the time of filing a dividend claim.

Eligibility for the dividend program is determined by an individual’s place of residence during the qualifying year.

The “qualifying year” is the calendar year preceding the year in which an individual claims a dividend for the current year.

Example: For a person requesting a dividend in 2021, the reference year is 2020.


Many of those who successfully applied for the PFD last year are still receiving checks.

Those classified as Eligible – Unpaid on or before April 12th will receive their payment by April 20th.

And those marked Eligible – Unpaid on or before May 10th will receive their check by May 18th.

While the payment for all applicants is $3,284, $2,621.81 of that counts as taxable income.


Beginning April 5, Colorado property tax, rent and heating subsidy recipients will receive payments of up to $1,044.

The $7 million rebate program will help low-income seniors and disabled residents.

And SSI beneficiaries will receive their April payment today instead of April.

While SSI is typically paid on the first of the month, payments are sent before the first if it’s a holiday or weekend.

Since April 1st is a Saturday, SSI will be distributed one day early on Friday, March 31st.

However, beneficiaries will have to wait until May 1st to be paid out again.
